Round table discussions with youth center personnel

On November 3rd, 2016 MCA organized a round table discussion with its local partners - coordinators and staff of the Youth Centers. It was the third meeting planned for the current year.

Program coordinator Dorin Birsanu moderated and facilitated the meeting which was held in the MCA office. Total number of 15 people participated in the discussion: priests, social workers, teachers and volunteers that work in the Youth Centers established in 5 villages with the support of MCA and Church of Sweden.

During the meeting the participants shared the information about the running activities of their centers and discussed the issues they face while working with vulnerable young people. Among the other subjects discussed were: motivation of youngsters to participate in the center's activities- how to make them attractive and at the same time useful for them; the situation of the beneficiaries- whether it improved or not and why.

In the end the participants shared their experience in the sphere of preventing domestic violence in their parishes and acting and helping to overcome crisis situations of child and female abuse.

The round table discussion was not only a good team building activity but also a good opportunity for the centers personnel to discuss important topics and issues that occur daily in their work and working environment.
