Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called ‘‘DEP’ Digital Entrepreneurship Project: Empowering Disadvantaged Young people with Resourceful Digital Skills’” which will take place from 18th until 27th July 2019 in Manchester, United Kingdom.
It is generally assumed that young people these days are versed in digital knowledge and can successfully transfer such into social capital in their respective local communities in EU.
‘Digital native’ is a term increasingly used in public discourse to describe the generations of young people who grow up surrounded by digital technologies.
The term suggests that young people intuitively know how to use technology for business and profit and hence have no need for digital education or training. ‘’DEP’’ Digital Entrepreneurship Project: Empowering Disadvantaged Young people with Resourceful Digital Skills’’ outline the issues connected with this assumption and provides evidence to demonstrate that it is a dangerous fallacy, that needed to be addressed and solutions going forward preferred.
The Training in line with EU thematic priorities; of ICT skills acquisition by disadvantaged young people, improvement, participation of disadvantaged learners, cultural diversity and inclusivity of people with fewer opportunities; coupled with annual priorities of inclusive growth, fight against marginalization of people of fewer opportunities encouraging them to participate effectively in the project life cycle aims.
PROJECT AIM is to encourage disadvantaged young people, youth trainers, youth workers, project multipliers and youth representatives to connect, learn how to deliver empowerment and employability skills training using ICT/digital, social networking media processes etc.
