In 2016 and 2017, The ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach Academy ran as a nationwide project: young artists from Baden-Württemberg, Berlin, Hesse, Munich, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony trained as junior lecturers for cultural and media education youth work.

The project “The ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach Academy – Training of Peer Coaches for Cultural Pedagogical Youth Work” was aimed at adolescents and young adults from a total of 5 federal states who would like to become active as peer coaches in cultural pedagogical youth work.
Since 2008, partner organizations in the international ROOTS & ROUTES network have jointly developed a concept and curriculum for a cultural peer coach training; for young artists in the fields of dance, music, filmmaking and visual arts who would like to pass on their competencies to other peers and younger people as coaches; and who would like to build up a secondary or perhaps even main activity as junior lecturers in youth and cultural institutions or at (all-day) schools. More information here.
In this project we cooperated with partners from different federal states. One round of the ROOTS & ROUTES peer coach training took place per project year, with block phases (peer coach academies) at Easter 2016 and 2017. A total of 44 young artists* from 8 federal states (17 of them from NRW) took part in the two rounds of peer coach training that took place in the two project years.
