From April 16 to April 20, 2018, World Youth Alliance (WYA) staff members, Hrvoje Vargić, and Elisabeth Gudenus, the new incoming Regional Director, where invited to Krakow by WYA Poland chapter leader Beata Wylaź, in order to train new WYA members.
As a newly established chapter, WYA Poland was able to invite a group of enthusiastic young students who wanted to know more about how they can engage in WYA’s mission.
Throughout the week, the participants learned about WYA’s foundational history, the WYA values and mission. Through the CTP, participants had a chance to read and discuss complex philosophical, historical, and political explanations of Human Dignity, Freedom, Solidarity, Culture and History of Ideas. They were also given the training on WYA’s Advocacy work in Europe, HDC, and FEMM programs, as well as the work of WYA Chapters on the national and local level.
The certifications are scheduled on May 8th, after which all certified members will be able to work with Beata Wylaź on the activities for the WYA Poland Chapter.
