Our courses are full of action. The participants are the protagonists of the course. We believe that learning is best when participants are involved in the process. We create a space that allows young people to contribute with their ideas and experiences; using powerful and creative techniques
Be among the growing wave of practitioners using PAR. Recrear’s model was designed for youth by youth from all over the world. It’s biggest value is using creative techniques to facilitate a dialogue, action and collaboration for more sustainable community development.
We recognize that it is essential to connect community actors to create more sustainable development. The course consolidates these links and friendships. By the end of the course, individuals gain a network of potential collaborators so their impact may be that much greater.
We offer PAR courses tailored specifically for your organization, university or social enterprise. Depending on the focus and size of the group, we customize our methodology to meet the objectives of your organization.
We help organizations and universities to co-design participatory integration strategies for organizations or social enterprises that manage youth programs o have youth as beneficiaries.
Registered as a Canadian Charity, Recrear is a youth-led organization with the mission to ensure that young people actively participate in the design and implementation of community development initiatives. By designing and implementing participatory, action-oriented youth-led research projects, we work to create a space for young people to use their imagination and energy to transform their communities. Since launch, Recrear has worked in over 25 communities running youth-led action research projects.
Our action research model is based on the belief that in order to understand community it’s first important to understand ourselves. By understanding how young people feel, think and act, it becomes easier to understand why and how community manifests the way it does. We also believe that being youth-led, action research should be designed and carried out by young people for young people. As such, we use creative techniques to create a creative and inspired environment where young people can also feel a sense of ownership in the space.
By creative techniques, we mean we use activities such as development theater, photography, art, creative writing and movement to facilitate dialogue between youth. We’re always looking to expand and grow our methodology with new techniques that allow the participants to be the protagonists of the workshops and share their experiences, abilities and ideas.
