Diversity School aims at empowering young people from regions that do not have easy access to non-formal educational programs and thus hardly speak any foreign languages.
Also international links and experiences are major motivating factors for the target groups. Diversity School also works with facilitators from different countries of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe, from the Russian Federation, Central Asia and North Africa. As these facilitators are usually unable to master the local language they communicate in English.
Language is, however, only one means of communication, and as Diversity School applies different creative and activity-based methods in its approach, such facilitators from abroad are nonetheless able to actively participate in the whole training process. These facilitators bring with them a valuable outside perspective, but they also challenge our fellows to talk in English and motivate them to learn it.
All the facilitators in Diversity School - local or from abroad - are active in the pool of Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg trainers and are involved in similar activities to Diversity School in Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, the Balkans, Central Russia and Siberia, the Baltic Sea region, Tunisia and Egypt.
The Diversity School program has in total 17 Georgian speaking trainers in Georgia.
