The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity (HfH), is empowering young people as change agents in the 21st century to build resilient communities through a Participatory Approach for Safe Shelter and Settlements Awareness (PASSA) that aims to develop local capacity to reduce shelter-and settlements-related risk. The IFRC seeks to capitalize on the power of youth collectives and support them to develop skills in joint analysis, learning, and decision-making that will help them to take action in their communities, contributing to the prevention of violence and high social risk in their neighbourhoods. To reach 10,000 young people in 70 cities in 10 countries over the next 3 years a core global team will train regional trainers that will in turn train facilitators who will then run PASSA Youth activities with young participants.
The general objective of this Training of Trainers (ToT) is to prepare facilitators to disseminate the PASSA Youth methodology so it can be applied in communities in need around the world. This includes project management, technical information about shelter safety, and facilitator’s skills for working with youth while fostering participation, leadership and empowerment.
