Venue: Grotniki / Łódź, Poland

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Malta, Poland, Republic of North Macedonia, Spain, Turkey

Application deadline: 18th June 2019

The main aim of this training course is to develop the competences of 24 youth workers from 8 countries to help them better support their youth to identify and pursue their life purpose.

General Description

The reality in Europe, is that students must decide at a young age, usually when they are 17 or 18, what career path they want to take.

After they select their desired field of study for University, it is extremely difficult to change their field of study and follow a different path in the future.

This results in a large majority of European students graduating University with no direction into what career path could fulfill them or what to do next, as well as high dropout rates.

That is why the idea for the TC is to equip European Youth workers with the competences (knowledge, attitudes, and skills) to support young people to find a sense of purpose and job fulfillment and connect their passions to employability.

Main Aim:
The main aim of this training course is to develop the competences of 24 youth workers from 8 countries to help them better support their youth to identify and pursue their life purpose.

THE TRAINING OBJECTIVES:

  • to increase the knowledge of youth workers on what purpose is, why it is important, and what is its connection to employability
  • to develop youth workers’ skills to support youth to identify their life purpose and unlock their potential
  • to increase awareness on the importance of discovering and following purpose for personal and professional fulfilment.

General Description

The main idea of this training course is to gather 27 youth workers from Poland, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Malta, and Romania that are ready to develop the competences (knowledge, attitudes and skills) of youth worker practitioners (including leaders of informal groups, teachers, trainers, coaches, social workers, etc.) to create their own human rights projects based on their personal interests, talents, and hobbies.

By the end of Phase 1 of the project, 27 youth workers will increase their knowledge on relevant human rights topics in Europe and the life cycle of a project. They will gain a pragmatic understanding of what actions they can take to address and prevent these issues in their local contexts, and develop personal visions for how to implement their own community development project addressing human rights.

2. Implementation of Worked out Tools (August – November 2019, countries of participants). By Phase 2 of the project, 27 youth workers will have developed their project management skills and put into practice their project visions for change developed during Phase 1. They will gain practical and tangible experience of tackling human rights issues in their local communities.
