Youth Peacebuilding Training Sudan Trainers Manual

While this Training Manual was deigned for youth in Sudan, it can be used in a wide variety of contexts. This manual is meant to be acci=ompanied by the pdf Participants Packet (1.32 MB) .

This manual is a publication of the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

From the introduction:

This training manual is participatory, interactive and designed specifically for youth. The participants are not passive learners and the exercises designed take advantage of the skills and experiences participants bring to a peacebuilding training.

Most of the activities or exercises in the manual are elicitive, meaning that they are designed to draw out the knowledge of participants as the basis for discussion and learning. Using this approach allows participants and trainers to identify and focus their efforts on local needs and adapt the training content to fit their cultural context.

The facilitator asks questions (why, how, who) and provides a framework for thinking and analysing, allowing participants to creatively address a common problem or issue.
