Sobre las becas para aprender soft skills
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 ofyoung 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.
At the same time, young people for whom partner organizations conduct activities expect these activities to develop their competence in the field of soft skills.
This project is an answer to the abovementioned needs of organisations and young people with whom they work with.
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.
– to define a role of soft skills in youth work
– to work on how to teach soft skills to youth with the youth workers are working with
– to create tools which help young people to develop their communication, time management, public speaking, creativity, project management skills
– to boost self-confidence, entrepreneurial and proactive attitudes of youth workers
– to create a safe space for participants to speak about their motivations and the challenges which they face in their daily work with young people and brainstorm about solutions.
We intend to reach this aim by the following objectives:
In the project will take part 26 participants coming from 12 countries: Poland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Spain, Latvia, Portugal, Macedonia, Turkey, Hungary, Italy, Greece.
Metodología aprender soft skills
The methods used in the project will be based on nonformal methodology:
discussions, simulation games, open space technology, role-plays, team buildings, drama, etc.
The main result of the project will be the creation of methods and tools that allow youth workers to effectively develop the soft skills of young people with whom they work.
