empowering the youth_coverWhat do I want from life? How do I find a fulfilling job? What are my values? How do I create a life we want? And how do I support others in creating it? “Empowering the Youth” project is here to support you in finding these answers for yourself! Join us in October, in beautiful park of the Czech Republic called Moravian Karst.

34 people. 8 nationalities. 10 days of an intense personal development training. Synergy method. Experienced international team.

„Empowering the Youth“ is a 10-day training course that will take place in the Czech Republic, in the ecocentre Svycarna close to Adamov, from 17th till 26th October 2015.

It aims to bring together youth workers, people working as professionals or as volunteers in various NGOs and other supporting professions, such as teachers or social workers who are interested in the topic of empowerment of the youth and want to share their practices and learn new tools and methods that are usable in their everyday personal and professional life.

The main topic we are addressing through the project is the youth unemployement.

We believe that one the most powerful ways to support young people in finding and getting a job is to stimulate their awareness of their own responsibility in their own approach to creating their future career path and achieving results they want. Concepts used in “Empowering the Youth” are supporting employment by empowering participants in creating strong attitudes towards career.

The training is for you if:

  • you are older than 18 years at the start of the training
  • you are a registered inhabitant of the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Latvia, Greece, Macedonia, Hungary and Italy.

  • you are willing to live, learn, play, inquire, reflect, experiment and explore in a multicultural group
  • -you are physically and mentally ready to take on 10-14 hours per day of programme

You will have an opportunity to improve your:
