Λίγα λόγια για το πρόγραμμα:
Youth unemployment is a pre-existing issue to the economic crises. Even before the economic crises, the youth unemployment was much higher than with adults (Youth Unemployment in Europe - Appraisal and Policy Options, Robert Bosch Stiftung, 2014.). Especially alarming situation is with the young people who completed the formal education and remain unemployed and without the possibility of continuing formal or non-formal education.
Surveys indicate far more difficult situation for young people without working experience to find employment and especially for young people with long-term unemployment status. This long-term status eventually leads to loss of self-confidence and motivation, which leads to even less possibility for finding work. Also, these young people usually have less possibility to gain and/or improve competences that could benefit them in finding work and usually have no opportunity of getting introduced to the possibilities of starting up their own business initiatives and ideas thus creating the self-employment opportunities.
Entrepreneurship school for youth workers - empowering for combating unemployment of youth in local communities aims to introduce young people and those working with young people, youth workers, with the concepts of entrepreneurship and how to promote it among youth they work with. The participants will gain competences in the following themes: Introduction to the Communication Skills, Communication Skills for Better Employability, Basics of the Project Management and Introduction to StartUps, Co-working Spaces and Social Enterprise (theory, practical work and study visit). Thus the training course will support better chances for youth employment, taking initiative in local community and combating negative social and economic trends.
The training course will be implemented through the use of non-formal methodology and it will be adapted to the participants. Methods to be used are discussions, role playing, case studies, simulations, group work, workshops, peer education, and other methods which are crucial for non-formal learning. Furthermore, during the training, the participants will have opportunity to visit successful startups and social enterprise business in the area of Primorsko-Goranska County (city of Rijeka). The training will be focused on experiential learning, meaning that participants will be put in the situations of unemployed young people and will learn from their own experiences (e.g. job interview, writing resume and cover letter).
The training course participants need to be experienced youth workers, volunteers in youth organizations and other experts working with young people (psychologist, sociologist, pedagogues, and trainers working with youth). Participants must be fluent in English (speaking, reading and writing) hence the official language of the training is English. Participants should be minimum 18 years of age, with emphasis that there is no upper age limit.
Participants should also:
- be highly motivated in learning new skills (especially regarding to the topic of the TC), meeting new people and exchanging their experiences;
- be able to communicate and work fluently and independently in English during the whole training course;
- be open-minded, enthusiastic and ready to work in challenging situations.
