Association for Young Adults
In February 2005, Helmut Meinshausen and four of his colleagues drew up the first basic training course for young adults. He wanted young people to encounter TCI in a different way than before. Young adults aged 18 to 27 were to have the opportunity to deal with themes specific to their age in a group of their own. Since, in general, persons belonging to this age group are not yet part of the workforce, the course fees were to cover only travel and subsistence expenses for the trainers, who were prepared to volunteer their time.
A project group was set up: it organized “Project 18-27”, which soon became a success.
This overwhelmingly positive reception highlighted the need for an organizational and structural inclusion in the Ruth Cohn Institute for TCI-international. In 2010, Project 18/27 became the “FöVe Association for Young Adults”.
Once the association had achieved its goal – the setting up of a foundation, that is – organization and holding of training courses became its priority, alongside publicity and support for projects.
The FöVe wishes to introduce young persons to the concept of TCI and give them the opportunity to complete a TCI training course. In order to achieve this goal, it offers info workshops and basic training courses at significantly discounted rates.
The association is a member of RCI-international, as are the Regional Associations and the Professional Groups. It holds a seat and voting rights at the International General Assembly.
All those who lead or have led seminars or basic training courses are members of the association.
Young adults who have completed their training by earning a certificate may not become members of FöVe. Rather, they can join one of the Regional Associations or Professional Groups belonging to the Ruth Cohn Institute for TCI-international.
