Training and education

The Healthy Children Concept recommends that the overall philosophy of the training program is based on the understanding that the quality, effectiveness and the sustainability of health promotion activities depend on the degree of participant involvement, the empowerment of target groups, and the creation of practical knowledge within the target group.

Thus, it is very important that besides providing health promotion skills to the health ambassadors, they will also obtain communication skills, coaching skills and motivational skills, which are essential for the health ambassadors to enter into a meaningful dialogue with the target group. A dialogue built on empathy and inter-cultural and contextual understanding. The health ambassadors must improve their own skills in order to be able to assist others to change and use the resources available in the most effective way.

In the following you can find material and examples on how to carry out the training and education of volunteers.
