Mali korak offers a variety of workshops that develop skills and behavior models in the spirit of cooperation, tolerance, mutual trust and support, creative conflict resolution and non-violent communication to all those interested in improving their personal growth and development through nurturing non-violence, cooperation and working in a different culture than the one we live in – the culture of peace and non-violence, as well as to those who want to improve their professional reputation and opportunities. Several times a year, we organize seminars for all interested public, and we send invitations to the members of our organization. If seminars and workshops are taking place in Zagreb, they are free of charge for our members. During seminars and workshops, we go through situations, exercises, activities and games that we can practically apply in our profession and life.

The workshops are specially structured to cater to the needs of educators (nursery assistants, teachers, pedagogues, professors) and other professionals (social workers and other help providers in group work with young people) as well as for the members of civil initiatives and non-governmental organizations.
