Training Course: Youth Digital Participation Lab

Dates: 28 April – 6 May 2020

Venue: Nea Makri (Athens), Greece

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden

Application deadline: 24th February 2020

The project аdvocаtes for аn inclusive digitаl educаtion to explore the innovative digital tools for youth workers aiming to promote participation of youth and porevent their disengagement with civic and democratic processes.

General Description

The continuous and increasing digitalisation in society, as well as changes in technology itself, results in strategies and policies becoming rapidly out of date. Youth workers need to continually review and develop new strategic policies and measures to meet the new demands for high quality digital education.

Non-formal education practices are no less affected not only because technology can impact the way education is delivered, but also because non-formal learning has a role to play in preparing young people for a tech-driven world. Moreover, growing up in the digital age does not make ‘digital natives’, inherently competent and confident with digital technologies. Surveys indicate, in fact, that the use of technology is to a great extent restricted to leisure time activities, while engagement with technology for educational or participation purposes lags behind.

On the other hand, the challenge is not only to ensure that young people develop the digital competences needed, but also to reap the benefits from the use of technology in order to foster engagement in being active citizens in their communities, especially that the lаck of youth engagement is still а serious issue аround Europe where weаk rаtes of youth participation in civic and democrаtic processes аre still obvious. Furthermore, their dissаtisfаction with conventionаl politicаl engаgement opportunities is widely documented: they express generаl disinterest аnd skepticism. Thus, they displаy а low level of politicаl pаrticipаtion, feel estrаnged from the politicаl system аnd underrepresented within the trаditionаl forms of pаrticipаtion.

Therefore, the project ‘Youth Digital Participation Lab’ aims to level up the digital facilitation skills of youth workers by exploring and adapting innovative participative digital tools in order to raise young people’s participation in civic and democratic processes.

In order to reach this aim, we’ll focus on the following specific objectives:

  • Increase the level of online participation of young people members of partner organisations by thinking of different ways on how to move up the ladder of online participation from E-Informing to E-Engaging.
  • Analyse the forms of digital dis/engagement of young people with democratic and participation processes in the 10 Participating countries.
  • Address digital citizenship and digital inclusion by focusing on specific tools empowering youth workers can use to deliver digital education to young people.
  • Design digital guidelines for youth workers and digital participation ecosystem, based on the analysis of the results of the previous objectives.

This рrojeсt is relevаnt for раrtiсiраnts with the following рrofile:
Yоuth wоrkers: whо аre empоwering yоung peоple, аnd regulаrly соnduсting lосаl асtivities (preferаbly nоn-fоrmаl) thаt invоlve young people оr hаve them аs mаin tаrget grоup.
Nоn-fоrmаl eduсаtiоn trаiners/fасilitаtоrs: with experienсe in using/plаnnig to use digitаl pаrtiсipаtion for fасilitаting nоn-fоrmаl eduсаtiоn асtivities аiming to drive up youth pаrtiсipаtion in their soсiety
Prоjeсt mаnаgers: Even thоugh, they аre by essenсe yоuth wоrkers аnd оссаsiоnаlly trаiners., we will fосus оn seleсting prоjeсt mаnаgers thаt hаve different levels оf experienсe in implementing yоuth prоjeсts foсusing on the use of digital education with young people as main target groups.

Youth Exchange. Be On T.I.M.E. Cyprus

Image result for mackenzie, larnaca

Youth Exchange Be On T.I.M.E: Technology, Innovation, Management, Entrepreneurship

Dates: 22 November – 7 December 2019

Venue: Larnaca, Cyprus

We are looking for 3 participants (17 – 30 years old) coming from: Greece

and Involves 53 participants coming from: Cyprus, UK, Spain, Greece, The Republic of North Macedonia, France, Spain, Romania and Poland.

Application deadline: 22nd November 2019

Last call for applicants!

The participants will be youngsters, aged 17-30 years, and will come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The project was born to address the need of youngsters to acquire more essential information for their development than is offered in the formal education system.

General Description

Today’s leaders must navigate business issues and interactions that cut across geographical boundaries and cultures. They must inspire conversations, ignite collaboration and integrate multiple perspectives to drive growth and innovation.

Inspiration, firsthand information, advice from accomplished individuals, are the ingredients, which constitute the flesh and bone of success, that are so often overlooked by management scholars.

Be on T.I.M.E puts these ingredients front and centre, allowing you to fraternize with social, practitioners, opinion makers and academic insiders through a set of activities based on Non-Formal education.

The course aims to:
– introduce participants, from a practical perspective, to business problems and challenges in order to get acquainted with actual business situations, problem identification, and problem solving approaches
– engage participants to the business ideas generation processes, assessment methods, and stages of developing business ideas
– support participants toward the preparation of actual demos/prototypes of their business ideas.

During the project participants will engage in real-life business problems, generate business ideas, prepare business plans (working in teams) and also prepare demos/prototypes for their business ideas. They will interact with the instructors and mentors as well as with business practitioners (company executives).

They will use modern learning resources (case studies, software and simulations) and they will compete for a business plan award and a best demo/prototype award.

During the YE project the participants will be under the supervision of the instructors and mentors who will offer knowledge, skills and guidance on education and training activities and provide feedback on performance; and with whom the graduate regularly discusses the progress in her/his activities during the course. “Be on T.I.M.E” Youth Exchange will focus on non-formal education.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation, food and materials – 100% funded by the Erasmus+ Programme. This includes everything, except for travel costs. It’s highly recommended to start buying travelling tickets early. It’s recommended to have a disposal for drinks, small shopping, etc. We are counting less travelling expenses as your contribution to the project.

Travel reimbursement

  • Greece, 275 euro

We will reimburse the travel expenses by bank transfer to partner organization accounts after the exchange. In order to make the reimbursement, firstly, dissemination activities will have to be implemented. Also, it is compulsory that you deliver all the necessary documents for us.

Training Course. Entrepreneurial mind-set development. Bosnia and Herzegovina

Image result for mostar

Training course: IntRApersonal aspect of Entrepreneurial mind-set development

Dates: 15-23 February 2020

Venue: Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Eligible are 28 participants coming from: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Germany, Italy, Serbia

Application deadline: 10th December 2019

Motivation of organisers is to “equip” young women with set of skills needed to work on personal development in fields of entrepreneurial intelligence and creating (self-)employment opportunities proactively in today’s reality of employment uncertainty.

General Description

Motivation of partners in this project is to “equip” young women with set of skills needed to work on personal development in fields of entrepreneurial intelligence and creating (self-)employment opportunities proactively in today’s reality of employment uncertainty and the world of extinction of many known jobs and occupation now and even more in the future.

Training course will take place in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina in period 15.02.2020 – 23.02.2020. That new needed capacity is entrepreneurial intelligence – competence that is more or less neglected by education system and main factors of socialization, it can be trained and developed by gaining different skills, knowledge, attitudes through quality youth work.

This project is strategic continuation of the partners’ endeavours to empower young women for their (self-)employment and entrepreneurship. This project is building up on the previous projects and brings added value to the organisations and respective communities/countries.

Aim of the project is to build capacity of youth (work) organisations, their young women entrepreneurship empowerment centres on local level and their youth workers in competences for entrepreneurial mind-set development through youth work in our communities and on European level.

We expect our project to impact a lot on youth workers from our youth (work) organisations and local entrepreneurship empowerment centres for young women through study visit, training courses and curriculums, as well as directly on unemployed youngsters / young women through online courses and the enlarged support tools and mechanisms in their communities for youth entrepreneurship education with focus on entrepreneurial mind-set development.

Thus, more young women will see entrepreneurship and self-employment as a possible career path and something that can be learned and developed, which will increase their intentions to start a business.
