BTS – International Accompaniment Training 2012
Jun 24 – Jun 27, 2012
Sun 7:00 PM – Wed 1:00 PM
International Accompaniment involves providing a non-violent international presence in areas of conflict to communities and individuals who have requested it due to threats and intimidation they face for the work they do. This training helps participants develop and deepen their understanding of accompaniment and human rights in Guatemala and Honduras. Involving role-playing, self-reflection and open discussion, the training allows participants to evaluate themselves to see if they are suitable for this type of volunteer work.
