Erasmus+: KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries

Place: Cyprus

Dates: 17/05/2016 - 25/05/2016

Having a university or college degree has become the norm in our societies but what do these give us in terms of skills. We hear that young people find it difficult to find employment because they lack the working experience and even worse so the skills to do certain jobs. Our project will look at the different skills that young people have and help them to develop and enhance these skills, help them find these skills and adapt them to a working environment so that they can increase their chances of employment.

We will look at the different fields of education that our young people have chosen and also look at their life skills, their soft skills, their practical skills and another other skills they might have and see how we can use these skills to make them more attractive to employers and also give them a more diverse spectrum of employment opportunities.

This youth exchange will focus on the different skills young have or can obtain through various methods allowing them to utilise their strength and enhance the areas of their weaknesses, to give them confidence and faith that their efforts are not lost and that even in difficult times, employment opportunities are out there for those that know how to use what they already have.

We will embark on a journey to a place called Skill Ville where we will work on our different skills and leave to face a real world filled with challenged that we are equipped to deal with, to embrace a labour market with our skills and change the status of young people from unemployed to employable and employed.

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
