Purpose

IT-Specialists, Social Economy Innovators, Educators and Experts involved in YOUTHShare project collaborated to produce an E-learning platform incorporating educational tools that enhance NEETs skills in the resilient sectors and pertinent social and sharing economy.

The YOUTHShare Training Package is designed and offered for both online and face-to-face delivery and aims at empowering the young women, migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and youth in general on the "Concepts and Tools in Social, Sharing and Resilient Economy".

The main thematic areas are as follows:

  • IT Skills in Sharing and Web-based Economy
  • Skills in Resilient Sectors
  • Skills in Social and solidarity economy
  • Soft skills for young people

During their training participants had the chance to learn how to develop a sharing platform, how to pitch their ideas in person as well as in social media, how to develop a business plan, as well as they developed employability skills related to hospitality, agri-food, tourism and the circular economy with the EEA.

The learning material contains activities for youth to apply the knowledge, cases studies and examples. After each unit beneficiaries can assess their knowledge through an online assessment to “unlock” the next chapter. Besides this, the learning platform offers the opportunity to discuss any question at a common forum.

The eLearning platform is available online and users can complete the training at their own pace and receive a certificate.
