KMsafe LogoOn July 9 in the Europe Hall of the Ramada Hotel in Sofia, Bulgaria, the KMS project was presented to a wide audience - more than 50 trainers from various forms of education in Bulgaria during the annual conference of the Association, during which the results of completed and current projects are presented.
The topic of the project is extremely relevant in Bulgaria, and the approach to educational and preventive actions by trained peers was widely discussed during the conference breaks. The ready-made training methods from the first intellectual product also aroused interest.


Despite the objective obstacles that quarantine creates for the project, for full communication with the target groups, the modern means of communication, which are also the subject of the project, help to gather information and prepare the content of the educational modules.

Research in partner countries has shown that the qualities that youth workers need to have in order to work successfully with their peers are not insignificant and are quite diverse, especially when it comes to a multicultural environment. The first graduates of "Youth Workers" of the University of Veliko Tarnovo will be in 2022. That is why the training modules on the project come to the aid of the current ones working with youths. The topics, content and exercises can be found on the project website www.keepmesafe.EU
