During the first six months of 2019, the young mentors advised more than 50 young people and helped them professionally orientate, develop their communication and entrepreneurial skills under the project “EME: New Way – Educated, Motivated, Employed!”.
These youth counselors are the six Sitovo youths who were selected in October 2018 for international training in Toledo, Spain. The training was organized within the framework of the project “EME: New Way – Educated, Motivated, Employed!”, funded by the Erasmus + Key Action 2 and its main purpose was to develop a New Way Model to support youth employability.
Young people from Lithuania, Portugal, Poland, Spain and Bulgaria jointly participated in the educational activities. At the end of five exhausting and refreshing training days in Toledo, the participants presented their opinions, assessments and recommendations for adapting a common model for developing skills for young people to work.
After completing the training, the trained mentors consulted more than 50 young people and helped them improve their communication and entrepreneurial skills. They applied the methodology “New Way!” to develop soft skills and employability. This model was presented to the local authorities in Silistra in May 2019. and will be included in youth policy at the local level.
Thus, the project “EME: A New Way – Educated, Motivated, Working!”, Which ends in June, successfully achieved its planned goals.
