ABOUT THE PROJECT
The eight-day project ‘’Get Digital, Get Skilled’’ in Istanbul combines education, cultural experiences, and skill development, providing participants with a unique opportunity to broaden their perspectives, deepen their digital skills, and establish lasting connections with peers from diverse backgrounds. Through a well-structured program, the initiative aims to empower young individuals to navigate the digital landscape with confidence and contribute to future projects that promote positive change.
The first day focuses on participants getting to know each other, discussing non-formal education, and deepening their understanding of the project’s goals. Day two aims to explore obstacles to digital literacy and ways to overcome them through theater sketches. The third day emphasizes enhancing participants’ web design and moderation skills. Day four introduces job-searching tools and CV development. Day five includes field visits related to digitalization and environmental practices. On the sixth day, local youth share insights on Erasmus+ and work on intercultural project ideas. The seventh day aims to increase participants’ understanding of the Erasmus+ program and support the development of new project ideas. The eighth day wraps up the youth exchange, providing a platform to reflect on the lessons learned, share future project ideas, and receive feedback from other teams and leaders.
