About "Find your talent"

Find your talent, work on your skills! is a 24 months’ strategic partnership project, financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ program, and it focuses on talent development in working with young people. Each partner organization has different expertise, methods and outlook on talent development.  Using interconnected expertise, we shall be able to develop methods and tools for youth workers to identify individual talent in a group, to stimulate self discovery, self knowledge and self regulation, to develop a program with projects and activities for all talent areas and skills needed nowadays.

Training courses

There will be 4 training courses, one per country, 80 youth workers will attend them and then disseminate and spread the knowledge in a web of local activities. Two intellectual outputs, a Guide on Talent Development and an Innovative phone app for visualizing youth’s talent will be developed with all the partners contribution.  A web of local activities will involve numerous youths from the local communities involved. During the meeting, the participants have gone briefly through all the project and have established clear responsibilities for each NGO for the following months. The first TC (training course) unfolded in December 2019, the second, will take place in Romania in October 2020, the third in The Netherlands in December 2020  and the last TC will take place in Poland in  2021.The second Transnational Meeting will take place in Belgium in June 2020, and the third in Romania, followed immediately by the multiplier event in  May 2021.

Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020, with organisations invited to apply for funding each year for life-changing activities. The program will continue from 2021 with some changes but with the same goals and a desire to involve even more EU citizens.

Erasmus+ aims to modernize education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education and the youth sector.

It is through the Erasmus+ program that our project is funded. E+ allows us to exchange experiences and expertise with organizations from other countries, and make it possible for youth to expand their knowledge of the world and their horizons.
