About the Project:

LET’S DEVELOP TOGETHER” is a Training Course (TC) that aims to gather in 50 youth workers from EU and region from 1 until 12. The aim is to explore the concept of entrepreneurship and business as an innovative way to solve social problems, unemployment using entrepreneurial and business skills. It is an attempt to give an appropriate answer to the problems that young people from Europe are facing in the present: the high percentage of unemployment and discrimination.

The educational programme administered in the frame of project TC will be based on a combination of online NFE instruments (Ice-breakers, Team Building Activities, round tables, workshops, simulations, participatory exercises, case-studies, Project Management Sessions, Evaluation Groups) devised to foster the maximum participation of participants throughout learning activities. TC workshops and activities will be administered by a Team of international Trainers from BRAVO organization and their partners with recognized experience in the delivery of NFE activities. The TC will focus on providing youth workers and leaders with knowledge, methodologies and NFE tools to spread entrepreneurial and business competences among youngsters as a means to enhance their active participation, empowerment and employability. In order to achieve the foregoing learning objective, the TC will address both “hard” knowledge and competences of Entrepreneurship (knowledge of rural contexts in terms of resources and grassroots needs/demands, competence to identify and exploit the economic potential of rural material/immaterial resources, management, communication, use of ICT digital instruments, principles of accounting and financial management) as well as transversal and “soft” skills forming part of the entrepreneurial tool set of business (digital skills, flexibility, creativity, pro-activeness).

Specific workshops will as well be implemented with a focus on conveying to participants principles, technical knowledge, methodologies and specific tools of NFE with a view to enabling them to effectively engage multiply the knowledge and skills acquired in the TC among youngsters by means of education.  Participants in project TC will work and learn online, with the assistance of the team of Trainers and experts.

OBJECTIVES OF THE TRAINING COURSE:

– to empower young people raising their self-esteem stimulating their creativity and sense of entrepreneurship;

– to raise awareness in the participants on key competencies and develop different methods for using them in practice within social projects, developing and matching them with the new requirements;

– to develop cooperation among young people from different countries and areas who would like to help and support employability in their countries;

– to incentive young people to get involved in NGOs, youth activities, into local authorities, into international opportunities that arise.

– also, for them to stay and/or return to their communities, be active citizens and contribute to the realization of changes. We believe we can contribute to this goal through non-formal ways, moving down-up.

Regarding the issues we want to tackle in the Training course, we intend to include the following:

– Youth Unemployment, by highlighting the educational and boundless opportunities that exist and promoting active and proactive responses to them. Through its contribution to the decrease of unemployment, the project can also help to revitalize disadvantaged areas;

– Creativity and entrepreneurship, with the intention to practice empowerment of young people in order to make them aware of their own values and competencies stressing their creativity and the capacity to create new job opportunities for themselves;

– Awareness about the nature of youth work through exploring the advantages, providing examples of youth work, trying to make the participants understand its purpose and meaning, as well as its impact on society, specifically on their communities and on their personal development.

– Preparation for the Interview for the new job opportunities;

– Presentation skills and public speaking skills.
