ERASMUS-The non-formal road to your career !

“The non-formal road to your career” project initiated by the Dominou Association Craiova, supports the youngsters from the countryside in guiding their first steps towards a job and offers information related to the labor market, the youngsters thus having key competences and entrepreneur skills. The project facilitates the transition from school having a job through non formal activities which help youngsters to discover steps of initial development. Along with the partner organizations partenere (Fundacja “Zielony Slon” Polonia, Adefis YOUTH INTERNATIONAL Spania, Pr’Animação – Associação de Animação Cultural Portugalia, Karagözoğlu I.O.O GSK Turcia, Kunsill Lokali Isla Malta), the members of Dominou Association reflected upon the problem of unemployment at youngsters and wanting to diminish the percentage of this, they thought of an experience exchange between youngsters which will improve their entrepreneur spirit through non formal activities. Target group: 35 youngsters from 6 participating countries ( 5 from each partner country and 10 from Romania ), aged between 18-25 years old, accompanied by a leader and the Romanian group will be accompanied by 2 leaders meaning 42 participants from Romania, Poland, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Malta. The project will be between 6th April-6th October 2015 and the youth exchange will be held in Craiova between 22-28 June 2015. The needs of these youngsters derive from geographical, economic, social, cultural problems: low level of social abilities, they do not find support when wanting to find a job, they do not know to design the instruments and materials requested at their jobs, they do not know to develop businesses, poor cultural, educational and social activity, they lack an adapted education and access to professional training, they do not know the advantages of non-formal education.
The objectives of the project are:
  • 1. Supporting youngsters in acquiring knowledge, competences and attitudes for personal and professional improvement through non-formal activities
  • 2. Increasing the chances of the youngsters who live in the countryside to get a job through exercising practical sessions of interaction with the employers ( face to face )
  • 3. Developing an entrepreneur spirit in all the 35 youngsters living in the countryside through activities developed during the project, using non-formal methods;
  • 4. Developing cultural and linguistic competences for the 42 participants(35 youngsters + 7 liders) through intercultural and non-formal activities organized in the 7 days of implementing the project.
