GRUNDTVIG learning partnership 2013
YOUNG WOMEN ORIENTATION FOR LABOR INTEGRATION Grundtvig partnership was thought having as goal the orientation through training of unemployed young women for professional life, to be a catalyst, offering information, inspiration and support.
The target group is represented by young women (20-30 years), who have completed their compulsory studies or who are in their last year of secondary education-case, and encounter difficulties when integrating professionally in society.
Many unsuccessful attempts to get a job make their self-esteem decrease. They often lose faith in themselves.
Our partnership will include both common and specific activities having as goal the motivation and the desire of young women to be inserted in the working field. This will assure them financial independence and consequently stability. Activities that we’ll carry out will be helpful in the process of finding a job (Internet job searching, CV writing, interview preparation). During a workshop we will discuss on the basis of concrete examples about how to transform hobbies (like painting, knitting etc.) in a source of earning money. We will also treat some strategies for starting small businesses getting inspired by the figure of some successful women.
In addition to these practical activities we’ll also conduct an intercultural study on cultural stereotypes and a comparative study about the role of women in different European societies.
In Cooperation with 9 European partners CHANCENGLEICH IN EUROPA e.V. is conducting the Grundtvig partnership YWOLI in the time period 2013 till 2015.
