The Fast Forward International training course aims at developing the competences of youth workers and leaders to support young people on how to deal in a constructive way with the challenges of choices they encounter. Young people are confronted with a rapidly changing society in which they are forced to make decisions that impact the rest of their lives in small or big ways.
Many of these choices need to be made in a limited amount of time and with pressure from parents, teacher and friends. Unfortunately, there are very few places where young can acquire the competences to deal with these situations and practice them in a safe environment. We believe that youth work can play a crucial role in this process.

- Develop competences to support young people in making informed choices.
- Discuss how to encourage young people to follow their passion/interests.

- Share creative tools and techniques that can be used for work with young people on issues mentioned above.
