The Project Boost Yourself UP! is a partnership for creativity between 4 youth organisations: Youth Support Centre (Poland, lead partner), Cooperativa Sociale Immaginaria A R.L.Onlus (Italy), CENTRAL EUROPEAN TRAINERS PLATFORM (Poland) and PLATFORMA GIA TIN EKPAIDEUSI KAI KATARTISI POLITON – ELLAS (Greece).
The main aim of the project is to give the partner organizations time and space for the exchange of practice, knowledge and competences between their youth workers, in order to implement engaging events for their young people to re-connect them, re-open for society and empower for the changes happened during the Covid-19 times.
We will focus on the development of new ways of working with young people using art and creative methods.
The project will equip partner organisations with a set of new, innovative and useful competences, tools, methods for their youth workers’ professional development. The activities were designed to raise the professional level of the role of the youth facilitator in order to enhance life balance and sense of initiative in young people affected by the pandemic stress, as well as to develop their skills and competences such as: social empathy, stress and burnout management, leadership, team work, active participation, open-mindset, flexibility, creativity, soft skills. The project is
targeting young people from the communities of the partner organisations, engaging them during both local events and online activities.
