Start date: Aug 1, 2015, End date: Mar 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

EN: Pursuing a higher education is one of the most important areas for the improvement of lives especially for the young people around Europe, (it is mentioned in several EU policy documents), which it helps them to prepare for the employability market. According to EUROSTAT, in February 2015, 5.392 million young people (under 25) were jobless. Unemployment youth rates, in general, are much higher than other rates for all other ages (, and so, this project wants to target one major aspect of this problem, discussing how innovative, non-formal methods used in youth work can contribute to increase power and employability skills of young people in Europe. The main objective of the project was to prepare a number of 28th youth workers to become career advisors during 7 days of training course. The secondary Objectives were: 1. To develop individual skills and competencies in the area of career consultancy, of 28 youth workers from six partner countries and one EU country within a training course for 5 days; 2. To create a compendium of at least 10 good practices and methods of career consultancy for other youth workers which can use them during their activities with youth. 3. To establish new synergies between the promoters and other partners of the project with at least 3 organizations, within at least five months after the training course; 4 . A broader understanding of the practices, policies and systems in non formal education and training in order to obtain high quality learning outcomes for youth workers. Number and profile of participants The training was conducted for 28 participants, each organization sent four (4) participants. The partners have managed the selection of active youth workers who are eager to engage in career counseling. Moreover, some of participants came from disadvantaged economic backgrounds and with fewer opportunities. The partners had ensured that participants would make a positive contribution to the training course, for themselves and for the organization as well. Description of work and methodology The main activity was a training course, which was organized in order to prepare 28 youth workers to become youth career counsellors. As noted above, the largest category of unemployed is young people. During the training, the facilitator had used non-formal teaching methods that were based on: - Heating, energizers - Games icebreakers - Peer work - TaskTeam - Presentations from facilitators, participants themselves - Orientation Meeting - Discussion group and bilateral talks - Case Study - Demonstration - Forum Theatre Result and impact Project results are divided into two categories: Results -Tangible: promotional materials, power point presentation, course support materials. Results -Intangible: the learning experience and language skills, being more open to other cultures, skills specific to empowering the youth work, group dynamics, entrepreneurship and creativity, professional development. Long term benefits This project was a pilot. We intend to involve in the near future as many as possible participants to develop activities in cooperation with youth organizations across Europe, mainly training courses, but also exchanges, seminars, study tours, etc. The place where the project took place was Bucharest and with our partners in Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Kosovo we ensured the best conditions for quality training and accommodation fitted in the EU requirements.
