Into the World
06 May 2017
The idea of the training ”Into the World” was born by doing a simple comparison between the potential of young people in EU and their reality. This is what we found out from this comparison:
The tremendous potential of youth!
o One in four European youth has been a volunteer
o 50% of European youth are active in organization, club or association
o The current generation of European youth is the best educated ever!
The sad reality of youth…o Currently, 13,7 millions of European youth (between 15 and 29 years) remain out of employment, education or training!
Seeing this, we felt the need of doing something about it. We envision a society where young people are able to transfer their potential and competences into practice, move from the place of acquiring to the place of applying, implementing and achieving. We are confident that this is time to support young people in order to get Into the World! How to do it? By following these steps:
1. We, youth workers need to support youth to realize the competences they have and find ways to put them into practice, to apply them in real life for their personal and professional development and get into the world.
2. We also need to support youth to embrace a purpose in life, a direction that will guide them throughout their life and is relevant for their personal, professional and social development.
All these are the elements we will tackle during the training ”Into the world”.
