SOFT SKILLS TRAINING

Soft skills training is an experiential training where we try living with people we don’t yet know, practice and gain new skills, and apply the skills we have already learned. Here we explore ourselves and others, discuss different topics, test our creativity as well as our cooking skills, meet new people and collaborate. It’s intended for people between the ages of 15 and 20.

PROJECT WORK

Project work emerged as an answer to the current state of society and the needs of young people. Working on projects allows us to be flexible and open in how we react to their needs. These types of programs don’t have a constant form; this allows for complete innovativeness of the project’s creators. Project work isn’t a consistent program, instead it’s created at the individual’s or a group’s initiative.

INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

We strive for continuous learning and growth. We believe that, in addition to the many programs we offer, going abroad also brings new knowledge. Our international cooperation is based on youth exchanges or trainings where participants gain practical skills that are supported with a theoretical background. These programs ensure a connection among youth workers across the globe and provide an insight into foreign good practices with which we enrich our programs.
