Positive Relationships Open Tangible Opportunities for New Developments
Start date: Mar 1, 2016, End date: Feb 28, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our project's goal is to establish a space for dialogue between the youth, private and government sectors with specific attention to Europe and Mexico/Central America so to work towards:Acknowledgement of NFL as a vital element in the formative professional path of young peopleRecognition of NFL by formal learning institutions, market actors and government institutionsEnhancement of the capacities of young people through engagement with NFL activities so to create multipliers and increase awareness of the value of NFLEstablishment of a dialogue between representatives of the youth, government, educational and market actors to better coordinate NFL training activities and integrate them into the formative path of young peopleFormalisation of the above mentioned training approach into a tool that can be used and integrated into formal and nonformal trainingThis will be achieved through implementation of:Youth trainingsJob shadowingYouth conferences (involving representatives of government, universities and private sectors)and preparation of Handbook and a Report on formal/non-formal interactionsOur methodology will make use of non-formal learning across all activities with use of creative methods, coaching participants through reflective exercises, contact sessions, energizers, cultural exchanges and games with the goal to help integrate them into the group, boost their emotional intelligence and learning, dwell on participants’ skills and experiences to increase their understanding of different realities, cultures, and approaches to an issue. At the end of each working day participants will be asked to reflect and evaluate the outcome of the sessions together with the trainers and steering group. By doing this, we will be looking to involve young people through (individual and group) mobility activities, while prompting a reflection on the way to use newly acquired skills on the job market. This will be made possible through involvement of other sector's (private, public) actors and identification of mechanisms to make this multi-sectorial interaction regular while identifying good practices that can be classified and serve to next projects. While doing this, we expect to involve nearly 200 young people in various aspects of mobility, 800 with local conferences and 64.000 indirectlyIn terms of impact we expect to: Foster a two-way dialogue with private sector partners, to better understand what elements and aspects of NFL can benefit the training of young people and their preparation to compete on the job market (or their capacity to become market forces themselves by creating a company).Use this experience as a good practice and call for a dialogue with government structures for a better integration non traditional learning path. This can be done by either the creation of mechanisms embedding NFL into formal learning or fostering interaction between formal and non formal learning.
