Teach2Reach

Workshops and vocational training on religiously motivated extremism

The Teach2Reach project is a response to the growing need for preventative political education in order to address the phenomenon of religious extremism. Its goal is to provide education about extremism and recruitment strategies as well as to develop potential courses of action for young people and specialised staff when signs of radicalisation arise. Other objectives are to demystify the phenomenon of jihadism and to increase the ability of young people to distance themselves from extremism.

Pedagogic objectives

  1. Expanding knowledge of inter-religiousness, identity and religious extremism
  2. Achieving awareness of the recruitment strategies of extremists and the stigmatisation of groups
  3. Enabling positioning in a pluralistic society
  4. Strengthening skills such as media literacy and awareness of tolerance
  5. Developing action strategies for dealing with recruitment attempts and religious extremism. At this point, the intervention team of the KOMPASS advice centre may be called in as a partner at any time.

Target group

The workshops are generally offered to pupils from grade nine to upper secondary and beyond. They last between one and three days and can take place either in the school or on the facilities of Teach2Reach. The vocational training is aimed at participants who are in permanent dialogue with youths who are placed at risk by extremist or fundamentalist ideology.
