Follow the Yellow Brick Road
Start date: Sep 1, 2014,
End date: Aug 31, 2015
“Follow the Yellow Brick Road” is an innovative KA1 Erasmus+ training course for youth workers, youth leaders, volunteers and multipliers. It will bring together 30 participants from 8 different countries to work together on the main topics: Passion, elements and non formal learning in relation to the problem of youth unemployment. The training course takes its name from the yellow brick road of "The Wizard of Oz": we chose this name because it relates perfectly to the topic of change, journey and transformation and this topic and theme will also create a red thread of the program of our training course.
The idea of the course was driven by the fact that young people with fewer opportunities (and especially those who left their studies at an early age) often lack the necessary competences and experiences in order to enter or stay in the labor market. Some of these young people need to find back their passion and know when they are in their elements. At the same time, non-formal learning which takes place within the framework of youth projects (in the Erasmus+ programme and beyond) provides very valuable learning experiences for young people, e.g. communication and the ability to work in teams, developing the habit of staying involved in an activity on a regular basis or at least for some time, taking responsibility etc. The course wants to bring people who work in the youth field, on a journey on the "yellow brick road" and provide them tools and inputs which might help them to be more aware of themselves, their passion and their element. These youth workers can multipliers their experiences to youth.
The project will take place in november 2014, the Netherlands, from the 24 November till the 1th of December 2014 and will involve 30 participants and 4 staff members and 2 experts from 5 different countries (Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, United Kingdom).
