Youth work empowers youth to work - CALLS FOR TRAINERS, ORGANIZER and PARTICIPANTS
Youth unemployment remains a society’s problems nowadays. People continuously think about which should represents a good solution, a sustainable one. What we believe is that young people must stand on their own feet.
Going in these directions, we need to find solutions that empower them. And, when formal education fails to do this, youth organizations feel the need to address it.
The activity that YEU proposes “Youth work empowers youth to work” is consisted of a 7days training course (TC) that will gather youth workers, coming from different European and extra-European countries, aiming to enhance their skills in order to empower young people to overcome unemployment.
The main focus is explore the current situation regarding unemployment in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Europe, the conditions under which youth live, their educational background, the match (or mismatch) between their studies and what they want to do in their lives. The best solution suggested by YEU is follow this interesting TC, that will let youth work raise their self-awareness, identify their talents, their skills, their interests and passions and thus follow what they want to do in their lives.
YEU believes that youth can fight unemployment when they adjust to their OWN interests and competences, when they are in their “element”(the point at which natural talents meets personal passion).
YEU envisions a world in which youth are empowered to acknowledge their interests and talents and with these tools fight unemployment. Once people do what they love and are good at it, they can be creative to financial crisis, innovative to social changes and flexible to technology reforms. In this sense, the TC proposed by YEU is very important, also because one result is the development of the capacities of the network to address the topic of unemployment. This approach might sound idealistic, yet if people don’t have ideals and visions, they cannot strive to improve things.
But step-by-step we develop together the basic roots on which we plant these precious advises.
