Erasmus+: KA1 - Mobility of Youth Workers - Programme Countries
Place: United Kingdom
Dates: 30/05/2016 - 07/06/2016
Social media has become the norm for most young people today and endless hours are spent on social media. We are planning a training course which will help develop methods and approaching which will allow youth workers to take advantage of social media in order to help youth with the serious unemployment problems which they face during the world crisis. The training course will address the various problems in each country and try to find EU solutions for these problems. We will look at the negative impact of social media, especially with regard to how it affects chances of employment and give the tools to youth workers and organisations to help youth in each of the communities to take advantage of social media. We will also develop strategies to turn social media into more of a learning experience rather than a platform to waste time. Our hope is to be able to take social media, a tool enjoyed by all youth, and turn it into a platform which will allow them to learn and also create jobs, find jobs and even develop business skills.
