Youth Exchange

 

 

Project Summary

The project Soft Skills, Hard Workersaims to develop the soft skills of young people aged 16 25. The idea for the project came out during our work with students teenagers aged 16-18. During activities, whose aim was to develop their teamwork spirit and make their work at school more efficient afterwards, we noticed that young people lack a lot of skills which they need to complete elementary tasks. The lack of real “eye to eye” communication with friends, relatives, colleagues do not allow youngsters develop skills which make them more competitive on the labor market and more adaptive as personalities. This is the reason why our work is focused on skills which develop youngsters in both professional and personal area.

During the Youth Exchange, we are going to pay attention to the following skills

Communication skills, teamwork, conflict resolution, time management, decision making, public speaking, digital skills, stress relief.

 

Methodology

For the purpose of the project activity non-formal methodology and learning by doing methods will be applied. Some elements will be examined through the prism of emotional intelligence. Theatre techniques, presentations, team work, roleplay, debates, simulations, outdoor activities will take place.

As a result of the work released before, during and After the Youth Exchange, youths will have a clearer view on their own abilities, they would be able to objectively evaluate themselves and realize what values they need to work on in order to develop them in a positive direction. Youth will learn how to control their emotions, listen convey a clear message to the target group they want; analyse and take informed decisions;be patient and tolerant and make compromise in the name of a common goal;be more initiative and responsible active citizens of this society.
