On June 4, 2018, a new training course commenced within the framework of “Better Future for Syrian-Armenian Youth Project”. The beneficiaries of the project participated in a course called Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
The organization of the course was made possible through the joint efforts of “Aleppo” compatriotic charitable non-governmental organization (Aleppo-NGO) and WCC Armenian Round Table Foundation (ART).
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is defined as the art and science of communication. This course will teach the participants how to learn to empower themselves and set themselves up for success. Whether they are out to energize their health or climb up the career ladder, NLP’s set of resources will help them operate and develop a map and timeline for success.
Laura Samvelyan, the coordinator of “Better Future for Syrian-Armenian Youth” project, welcomed the participants of the course and informed them about the goals and the importance of the project. In her speech, she mentioned that the integration of Syrian refugee youth into Armenian society is the primary goal of the project, and she is hopeful that this course will have its positive impact on self-development and finding employment.
Hagop Makdis Mousso, the main trainer of the course, started commenced the program with the following note: “Thousands of successful professionals around the world have taken the NLP course and realized that it has consistently helped them achieve the goals they set out for themselves.”
This 6-week long course will be useful for participants with different educational and employment backgrounds. The course hopes to give participants the tools to better interact with their colleagues, overcome communication issues, and become more goal-oriented.
After the completion of the course, the youth will receive certificates of participation.
