EMPOWERING YOUTH WITH GREEN AND DIGITAL SKILLS

Erasmus Training Courses

FUTURE targets the enhancement of green and digital competences among youth workers and young individuals, with a particular emphasis on NEETs, the unemployed, and those with limited skills. This initiative aims to bolster their sense of initiative, entrepreneurship, and employability prospects. FUTURE facilitates the partnership of those who share a commitment to fostering both skill and responsibility in youth education with a newly established partnership led by an association from Portugal together with European partners from Romania, Spain, Greece and Lithuania. We decided to move things forward and proposed an innovative learning environment for teaching and learning how to support the NEETs with new skills.

FOR A BETTER FUTURE

Learning opportunities for elderly

By creating an entrepreneurial coaching platform, a Toolkit to create Green and Digital Business plans and implementing a training course and a piloting plan, we provide the needed educational resources to youth workers to implement them in their daily work with youth that need to improve their readiness and capacity to be able to integrate into the labour market.

What do staff and volunteers need for supporting the NEETs

A 3-step process made easy

We designed a simple 3-step process to help health and social service providers ease their work and empower youth to become valuable citizens at the same time. Here is how it works:

=

1. Understand needs

NEETs have varied backgrounds and skill levels. Offering customized learning pathways that cater to their individual strengths and needs can help them build digital literacy, entrepreneurial mindset, and green awareness effectively.

Engaging mentors and experienced professionals can provide NEETs with valuable insights, guidance, and real-world perspectives. Mentorship programs can help them navigate challenges and develop a deeper understanding of the skills they are acquiring.

2. Upskill trainers

If we address these needs, stakeholders can create a more inclusive and effective learning environment for NEETs, equipping them with the digital, entrepreneurial, and green skills needed to succeed in a rapidly evolving world.

By trainers we mean adult trainers, educators or coordinators of health and social services providers who want to inspire and train people working with youth, including their volunteers and staff, to become coaches for the NEETs who are interested in learning and contributing to society.

3. Train professionals

The landscape of digital, green, and entrepreneurial fields is dynamic. Youth workers need training that emphasizes adaptability and encourages them to stay updated with the latest tools and methods to effectively teach these skills.

Just as NEETs need ongoing learning, youth workers also benefit from continuous professional development. Through our training sessions, workshops, and online resources we will help you to better achieve your mission to support the learning for others.
