Project description:

The core objective of training course (TC) “Take up, help yourself.”, is introduction of the nonformal and informal methods and tools for youth workers that can foster their contribution and support in the integration process in the labour market.

The group of participants will consist of 30 participants coming from 9 partner countries, over 18 years old motivated to develop their competences in applying nonformal methods to facilitate the young people’s integration on the labour market. We aim to increase the level of awareness of youth workers from Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Greece, Czech Republic, Spain, North Macedonia, Sweden and Portugal regarding the impact of using nonformal methods in helping youths get a job. Participants come from similar backgrounds: countries with an increased level of unemployment and the limited competences of youth workers where the young people face difficulties when search for a job.

This TC comes as an answer to this problem and aims to help young people to increase their job perspective and also from a macro point of view leads to an increased level of youth employability.

The profile of the participants fulfils following criteria:

  • be a youth worker in the sending organisation; -active in the youth work field; -have a B2 level of English language;
  • interested to develop their competencies regarding nonformal methods to empower youths;
  • motivated to contribute to their communities;
  • come from communities with an increased level of unemployment;
  • availability to get actively involved in all phases of the project until the end (including the dissemination and exploitation of results); -gender balance and non-discrimination principles are considered.
