According to applicant organization youngster’s self-analysing skills are poor. Youngster learn new skills and get new knowledges about themselves but they don’t acknowledge these things to themselves. Self-analyse skill is important because it helps to understand better who we are and what are we capable of. Also members of the applicant organization find that it’s natural for people to make mistakes, but often nobody learns from their mistakes because they don’t know how to analyse their actions. Young people need to find their skills, they have to appreciate their skills. Also they need to analyse and understand what abilities they should develop more and what abilities are they good at. Analysing own skills and acknowledging them help youngsters to understand what they are capable of. The ohter important issue for applicant organisation and partners is youngsters unemployability. Young people are not enough self-confident and proficient to share their skills and knowledges. But these two things are really important when they try to find a job. Applicant organisation finds that when youngsters are able to bring out their strenghts and weaknesses and know, what are their development opportunities, then they know better what are they capable of. That helps to grow youngsters self-confidence and bolder stance when they try to find a job.
The main goal of the project ELLE is to show to participants how important it ist o analyse their actions and what they can learn through analyse. Also the aim is to show participants how šelf-analyse skill can help them with job search. Main workmethod during the project is adventurous methods. Through adventurous activities participants experience new situations. Experiencing unknown situations we need to calculate risks and our competences. Through that it is possible to experience success or failure. Adventure activities often create similar situation with work interview – applicant will become nervous, their hands will shake and overcoming the fear demands concentration. So, trying adventurous activities and analysing them helps participants to understand what kind of emotions they can experience during the work inteview and how they can control these emotions.
