What is “Walking on your Inner Pathways”?


We're happy to introduce our new initiative, "Walking on Inner Pathways." This project is designed to support youth workers and adult educators who are facing burnout, exhaustion or considering leaving their profession, as well as to aid their learners from disadvantaged backgrounds, including the unemployed, disabled, refugees, and those living in rural areas.

Our approach includes organizing two residential learning sessions Inner Pathways 5 days in Hungary (current call) and a Walk to Assisi 10 days in Italy (September 2024), and launching a preparatory online course, providing ongoing mentoring, and conducting various dissemination activities. Our ultimate goal is to boost the resilience and well-being of both youth workers and their young participants, helping them to integrate more effectively into a long term youth work practice.

This project is built in collaboration with Kulcs Association Romania- and Libero Pensatore Italy - and mutual learning, tapping into a decade of exceptional adult education/youth work experiences shared among our partners. We're committed to exchanging insights, developing innovative tools, and applying best practices learned from our residential sessions across participating countries and beyond.

The objectives of "Walking on Inner Pathways" include:

  • Enhancing the quality of youth work and learning.

  • Improving the resilience and well-being of all participants.

  • Creating sustainable career paths for both learners and facilitators

  • Fostering collaboration among diverse groups.

  • Implementing a common framework based on resilience tools.


Our innovative methodology blends folktale therapy, storytelling, and informal outdoor walking courses inspired by non-formal education-based "pilgrimages," tailored to the specific needs of the participants involved. We also offer a suite of accessible tools, including individual and group activities, a "Heartland" online resilience course, and guidelines for overnight walking programs.

Moreover, we address the crucial issue of social inclusion, focusing particularly on youth workers who are at high risk of burnout due to the pressures of working with adults facing fewer opportunities. These educators often experience increased stress due to global crises or lack of recognition in their roles.
