Eligible are 32 participants coming from: Armenia, Belarus, Croatia, France, Georgia, Germany, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Ukraine

Erasmus+ youth mobility, training course for youth workers regarding the topic of Social Entrepreneurship, 21-29 November, 2019, in Bakuriani, Georgia.

General Description

Many years of working with young people at risk of exclusion made us realize that providing young people with any kind of job is not the ultimate goal, as this might just shift them from being UNemployed to being MISemployed (having a job that brings them no benefits except for basic income).

We believe social entrepreneurship is a way not only for providing individuals with work places, but also for bringing a substantial positive change in the whole communities.

The lack of knowledge and tools on the topic is especially visible among the countries outside of the EU, therefore the project brings together partners from both Program and EaP countries. This is also the one of the reason we have chosen to organize this current project in Georgia.

Profile of Participants

  • Age 18+, there is no max. age limitation
  • Able to communicate in English fluently
  • Experienced Youth Workers or individuals who are interested in starting youth work
  • Motivated to explore new ideas and methods regarding the topic of social entrepreneurship

Objectives

1. To promote the knowledge about social entrepreneurship and its potential benefits for young people at risk of exclusion from labor market.
2. To explore and discuss the challenges and solutions connected to work with young people who struggle to find a job.
3. To get to know best practices of successful social entrepreneurship that reduced the unemployment level and to provide participants with inspiration in the field.
4. To popularize entrepreneurship among young people by stimulating resourcefulness and creativity;

5. To equip youth-workers and then youth organizations with, tools, methodologies, and techniques to develop projects on the promotion of social entrepreneurship;
6. Creating networking among young people of European Union and Eastern Partnership Countries.

Costs

Еще одной важной и непростой задачей является вовлечение молодежи с ограниченными возможностями в активную социальную практику и создание необходимых условий для возникновения диалога и взаимодействия между обычной молодежью и молодежью с инвалидностью. Тренинговый курс проводится при финансовой поддержке программы Европейского Союза Erasmus+.

Цель проекта – вдохновить всех тех, кто работает с молодежью (молодежных работников, тренеров, молодежных лидеров, педагогов, волонтеров и т.д.) раскрыть свой потенциал в создании региональных и международных инклюзивных проектов, включая молодежные обмены в рамках программы Erasmus+.

Задачи тренингового курса:

предоставить возможность совместной работы в инклюзивной группе;
ознакомить участников с ценностями, принципами и методами неформального образования и способствовать их применению в работе с разноуровневыми группами;
предоставить пространство для обмена реалиями и успешными практиками работы в инклюзивных группах в странах ЕС, регионе Восточного партнерства и России;
ознакомить участников с критериями качества проектов молодёжных обменов, включая Youthpass и различные обучающие инструменты, которые будут впоследствии использованы в их работе с молодежью;

способствовать расширению количества участников, знакомых с программой Erasmus + и уверенно организовывающих самостоятельные проекты; предоставить безопасное пространство и поддержку участникам в разработке общих идей инклюзивных проектов молодежных обменов, которые будут реализованы после курса.
Курс знакомит молодежных работников и лидеров с навыками и инструментами для их дальнейшего развития и предполагает применение инклюзивного подхода в своих городах/странах.

Venue: Bakuriani, Georgia

Eligible are 27 participants coming from: Armenia, Croatia, Denmark, Georgia, Moldova, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Ukraine

Application deadline: 20th September 2019

Training course aims to give youth workers skills and competences regarding the topic of intercultural dialogue by understanding of existing problems and its causes, exploring existing lines of tensions/conflicts in Europe and neighboring countries

General Description

Processes of the globalization, social-economic conditions in neighboring countries, and conflicts in developing countries force thousands of people to migrate in Europe for sake of finding shelter and better living conditions there.

It caused mixing of various people and nationalities, coexistence of people with different backgrounds; however, this process also led to conflicts among those groups, judging people by their backgrounds, judgment based mainly on stereotypes and prejudices. All these reasons interrupt process of developing civil societies within states.

Each conflict situation can be multiplied in future and lead us to dangerous situations in various countries. Thus, the main aim of the training course is to increase level of awareness of youth workers, to give useful tools, teach new methodologies and activities that will help them to make their local realities better, to lead their societies change towards peaceful civil society.

Nowadays we often face discrimination based on religion, race, nationality etc. Europe needs more cohesive and inclusive societies, to promote common European values, foster social integration, enhance intercultural understanding and a sense of belonging to a community and to prevent violent radicalization. Our Erasmus+ training course is an effective instrument to promote the inclusion of people with disadvantaged backgrounds, including newly arrived migrants.

For above-mentioned reasons, main aims of the project are to build civil societies with tolerance, to create a space where people with different backgrounds will live peacefully. Thus, this investment in knowledge, skills and competences will benefit individuals, institutions, organizations and society as a whole by contributing to growth and ensuring equity, prosperity and social inclusion in Europe and beyond.

Objectives

  • Understanding of existing problems and its causes, exploring existing lines of tensions/conflicts in Europe.
  • Teaching young leaders useful tools and methodologies in order to reduce discriminatory and stereotypical thinking.
  • To have a space for young leaders to share their best practices of their local societies.
