Today's world is a mix of our activities in the real world and ones in on-line world. As a young generation we grew up with the computer, Internet, cell phones, mobile Internet and social networks. We cannot deny that more and more is going on-line, from making friendship and everyday communication to making business and cooperation. Progress cannot be stopped but it should be well understood and world should properly benefit from it. While each young person will say that knows how to use social networks, Internet, multimedia, computer and mobile phone, which is true, in fact they know very little of how to use it properly. These Information communication Technology tools give us so much more than for what they are currently used.
The aim of our project is to equip a young person with skills and knowledge that will be valued on business market. Help them be more competitive in labor market. We recognize market needs for constant learning and growth of individuals, particularly young people. With a proper use of these tools they will manager to manipulate easier through digital world and get them more familiar with Information communication Technology. We will show young people and partner organizations ways to exploit the vast potential that provide us these tools. Discover opportunities and areas to improve the current communication, research, collaboration, business capacity and more then all their self-learning skills. We want to open their horizons so they can identify potential and future, give them theoretical and practical knowledge, and teach them how to multiply the current efficiency of the tools they already use every day. We believe that with this project we will trigger their desire for further improvement in ICT area and give them enough knowledge during activities, that they could do this by themselves using same tools that they been taught. In this ways we will strengthen a link between informal education and preparation for labor market.
