HERE you can download the methodological guidelines called EMPATHY CONNECTS that were created during the educational workshop. The guidelines are primarily intended for the use of young volunteers during their volunteering outreach into elementary schools in order to educate and raise awareness on tolerance and tolerance towards diversity.

Did you like it?
After the workshop my teacher came to me with a question: ,,Did you like it?” I said that it had been a perfect experience. I wanted to share new knowledge about prejudice and try to do interesting activities with students. Me and a few members of our school club were doing activities on two lessons with every class in the first form. Before the first lesson I had been a little nervous, but after that I was satisfied. Students enjoyed it! So in my school we were continuing with these for about three weeks. I was surprised how students joined the discussions and were active. That was over my expectations and at last I got pleasing feedbacks from them.
