About the Project:
“Social and Urban Business May be a Treasure!” is a Training Course (TC) that aims to gather in Sanok (Poland), from 21 – 27/06/2020 (7 working days+ 2 travel day), 45 youth workers from 9 countries (Poland, Italy, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Turkey, Serbia and North Macedonia). The Training Course aim is to explore the concept of social and urban entrepreneurship as an innovative way to solve social problems using entrepreneurial skills and youth voice. It is an attempt to give an appropriate answer to the problems that young people from disadvantaged throughout Europe are facing in the present: the high percentage of unemployment.
For the reasons mentioned above, the objectives of the TC are:
– to empower young people raising their self-esteem stimulating their creativity and sense of entrepreneurship;
– to raise awareness in the participants on key competencies and develop different methods for using them in practice within social projects, developing and matching them with the new requirements of Erasmus with their organizations;
– to develop cooperation among different organizations coming from Slavic countries and Mediterranean;
– to incentive young people to get involved in NGOs, youth activities, into local authorities, into international opportunities that arise. Also, for them to stay and/or return to their communities, be active citizens and contribute to the realization of changes. We believe we can contribute to this goal through non-formal ways, moving down-up.
Regarding the issues we want to tackle in the project, we intend to include the following:
– Youth Unemployment, by highlighting the educational and boundless opportunities that exist and promoting active and proactive responses to them. Through its contribution to the decrease of unemployment, the project can also help to revitalize disadvantaged areas;
– Creativity and entrepreneurship, with the intention to practice empowerment of young people in order to make them aware of their own values and competencies stressing their creativity and the capacity to create new job opportunities for themselves;
– Awareness about the nature of youth work through exploring the advantages, providing examples of youth work, trying to make the participants understand its purpose and meaning, as well as its impact on society, specifically on their communities and on their personal development.
About Training Course:
The training course is based on the pedagogical understanding of the Council of Europe and European Commission Partnership Programme and our own experience and expertise in health- enhancing physical activities, youth work and intercultural dialogue. The training course will follow the non-formal education approach, principles and methods and will be based on participants experience and exchange. A combination of different creative, participatory and interactive method will be used and designed upon the profile of participants, some of them being:
theoretical themes and lectures;
group games and exercises,
simulations and role-plays;
work on examples in a small group;
sport and outdoor activities,
The learning of new skills, the acquisition of knowledge and the exchange and challenge of each other’s attitude and experience are very important for this training course.
