"Training of Trainers" in youth social entrepreneurship education, Sisak
During the last week, four people from Sisak participated in an international Training of Trainers on social entrepreneurship for enabling young people to take active role in planning their professional development.
Representatives of the Local Democracy Agency Sisak – ALDA Operating partner – who participated in the Training for Trainers on social entrepreneurship, confirmed that a lifelong learning is very important in today’s fast-growing society. It is always required to develop new competences on permanent basics.
The intensive education event, held from 1-9 November 2016 in Durres (Albania), gathered future trainers who will work with youngsters on raising awareness and building capacities for their active involvement in planning of not only professional lives, but also their communities. There were 32 participants from 8 countries: Croatia, Albania, Serbia, Romania, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Greece. This education event is a part of the European project "RAISE: Raising the Advantages of Youth through Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship
“, where LDA Sisak is partnering.
The main aim of the project is to improve employability and competences of young people in partner organisations, using youth work and non-formal educational learning methods. Participants learned how to turn ideas into actions, be creative and innovative, take risk, plan and manage social projects, and how to be a good trainer who will transfer knowledge to others.
Doris Brala and Antonela Gajdek, Lahorka Zec from Sisak Technical School and Zvonimir Rajković from Sisak Tourist Board, participated on behalf of the LDA Sisak. During their stay in Albania, they visited the Ministry of Innovation in Tirana, which is open to anyone with innovative ideas. Delegates will pass the new knowledge to interested youngsters at the various workshops, in Sisak Technical School and Sisak associations. Additionally, to give young people a chance to learn more about entrepreneurship, the five LDA Sisak representatives are participating on a youth exchange in Durres, Albania, as a part of the RAISE project. The RAISE project is funded by the European Union and Erasmus Plus programme.
