The project in a few words

The ACMIT project (Assessment of Competences using Multiple Intelligences and Theatre) is a 6-day training course organized by FOCO in which 20 youth workers from 9 different European countries will come together in A Guarda (Spain) in October 2022 to explore how can the Theory of Multiple Intelligences can be used to guide young people to assess their own competences using non-formal and theatrical activities.

The participants will experience the activities proposed and will discover their own performance in the 8 areas described by the Multiple Intelligences theory outlined by Howard Gardner. The implemented activities will not only be experienced, but they will also learn tips and techniques that can help them implement these activities with their groups of young people.

Main Objectives

  • Provide youth workers with new methods which can be used in their daily work with youth groups,
  • Explore the Theory of Multiple Intelligences which can be used to guide young people to assess their own competencies using non-formal and theatrical activities,
  • Improve the skills of the youth workers involved.
