Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called “Soft Skills for Youth Workers” which will take place from 02nd until 10th December 2019 in Zakopane, Poland.
The main aim of the project is to equip youth workers coming from partner organisations with the soft skills, such as effective communication, time management, public speaking, creativity, project management and to inspire them to make the usage of these skills in designing and implementing activities for youth.
The project “Soft skills for youth workers” is designed as training which is planned to help youth workers, educators, volunteers coming from partner organisations with their daily work with young people, and primarily to teach them or develop their soft skills and provide them with the methods and tools, how to transmit their knowledge about soft skills to young people with whom they work.
Nowadays, youth workers are often the only people who care about the development of soft skills among young people with whom they work with. Youth work focuses on the holistic development of young people – it develops the knowledge, skills and attitudes of young people. At the same time, most employers consider soft skills as a very important factor when hiring new employees, but often they indicate that formal education does not ensure adequate development of soft competences among young people.
The need for our “Soft skills for youth workers” project is that members of partner organizations themselves often need to be trained in various soft skills such as effective communication, time management, public speaking, creativity, project management, because they do not they have the right skills and are not competent enough to pass these skills on to the young people they work with.
This event will bring together 24 participants from Hungary, Bulgaria, Greece, North Macedonia, Italy, Turkey, Croatia, Estonia, Spain, Cyprus, Latvia and Portugal. The event will be held in English. There are 2 vacancies available and participants should be minimum 18 years old.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 275 euros. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
