The ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach Academy

1. November 2015 – 31. October 2017

The project “The ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach Academy – Qualification of Peer Coaches for cultural youth work” (RRPCA) is addressed to young people with artistic skills from five federal states in Germany who want to become peer coaches in cultural youth work.

Since 2008, partner organizations in the international ROOTS & ROUTES Network have developed a concept and a curriculum for a cultural peer coach education program: made for young artists from the fields of performing arts and media who want to impart their competences to people of their age or to younger ones. They might also want to establish themselves as professional coaches in youth centres or schools as part timers or even as full time workers.

Outlines of the ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach education:In this project, RRCGN cooperated with partners from various federal states in Germany. In each project year, there will be one edition of the ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach education. In total, 48 Peer Coaches will be trained, 16 from Northrhine-Westfalia, 32 from other federal states.

The project „The ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach Academy“ is funded by Stiftung Deutsche Jugendmarke e. V. and by DOHLE Stiftung.
