Peer educators from partnership municipalities of East IlidĹľa, IlidĹľa, Fojnica, ViĹˇegrad, Vitez, Novi Grad Sarajevo, TeĹˇanj, attended during the past three days an advance training known as Follow Up. The 3-day training was held at SPAJALICA from 20 to 22 May of the current year.
Educating peers on topic of sexual and reproductive health and rights, as well as on other topics are conducted by young peer educators their local communities, elementary and high schools. Thus, the building and strengthening the existing knowledge of peer educators, particular dedication to skills of public speaking, preparing and managing presentations, practice in working with different age groups, were some of the Follow Up activities.
The advanced training resolved many dilemmas of our peer educators. The held training was an ideal opportunity for youth to ask numerous questions and to be provided with accurate answers. During the advanced training, the skills that educators acquired in previous trainings were followed carefully, and they were indicated to those skills that they use rarely or not at all in their work. It is very important that an educator continuously builds on his/her knowledge with accurate and tested information.
Follow up is the last link of the chain of activities for peer educators as a part of the GIZ youth health project. In the following period, since the whole training process is coming to an end, the peer educators will be awarded with certificates.
