“Coaching: Level One” sees a path that starts from exploring coaching from the perspective of selfcoaching and self-awareness, to coaching others and empower towards self-awareness and goal achievement. Participants will experience through experiential learning, non-formal education and value-based learning a journey across psychology, philosophy, pedagogy and social anthropology.
They are going to gain tools, self-awareness, attitudes and competences that will later benefit the target groups of their youth NGOs back home, when being walked through their action plans supported by their peers and the training team.

The host organization:
Our aim is to educate and inform people about educational opportunities, build and develop their competencies and support their active participation and initiative through many various projects in Slovakia and abroad. Dedicated to youth, their problems, and needs from the very beginning, EduEra undertook numerous activities promoting and enhancing non-formal education. The main activity of EduEra is to find a common way for formal, non-formal education and business sector. Our activities are mainly focused on cross-sectoral collaboration between schools, municipalities, and NGOs. EduEra encourages the active participation of young people in the creation of new ideas and initiatives.
The non-governmental organization EduEra is registered by the Ministry of the Interior of the Slovak Republic as a citizen’s association since 2017. This step is only a result of many years of work of individual members of this association with youth in Slovakia.
Our members come from different parts of Slovakia and focus on different areas where they see the potential and opportunity for young people. Our staff is constantly training and developing skills in order to be able to integrate always new tools within our educational and training programmes. Some of them have been teaching for years and graduated as a teacher, psychologist, therefore, they have the “formal” experience of dealing with youth and adults. We believe that the most important value of society is education.
In 2018 EduEra was awarded by Slovak National Agency as the best NGO in the field of non-formal education supported by EÚ, also our Erasmus+ KA1 training course “TRAINBOW” was selected as a good practice example of 2018 from Slovakia and the work of EduEra was presented in European parlament during the European Youth Week in Brussel.
