We are committed to organizing outdoor activities with our local partners and involving our members and volunteers, using the learning method elaborated with the other organizations. The main idea is to support young adults from different countries in entering the labor market through inclusion. We believe these people involved should be truly engaged in every process – they should always have tasks and activities in each event, which brings them closer to understanding what they are already good at and what they would like to develop.

As Rota Jovem from Cascais, Portugal, we will work with our local partners, that have recognized work with young adults in the employment and social inclusion areas. We are planning to do a lot of activities and events, like outdoor camping weekends, reforestation events, employability bootcamps, hiking, surfing classes, beach clean-ups, working in community gardens, football tournaments, fundraising in local events, swap markets and street actions (e.g. demonstrations, awareness-raising activities, flashmobs).

Stay tuned for further updates. ๐ŸŒŠ

“Connectivity” is a project that focuses on developing a method of sustainable inclusion for unemployed adults and disadvantaged groups by creating an accessible learning frame through educational outdoor activities.
Through this project, we would like to offer a solution to this challenge by giving high-quality learning opportunities, which are tailored to the needs of each individual disadvantaged adult, so that they have higher chances to enter the labor market. By creating an innovative playground and engaging people with limited formal education in the activities and work of the organizations, inclusion will be achieved and unemployment will be tackled.

The project brings together 7 partners from the Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, Portugal and France.

For us,ย Active Bulgarian Societyย team, “Connectivity” is a great opportunity to expand our partners’ network, learn from more experienced partners in the Adult Education field, and last but not least, share our solid experience in the field of non-formal education and outdoor activities, for the use of the unemployed adults and disadvantaged groups, the target group of the project.
Thus, this project will help us engage more adults who are either unemployed or with fewer opportunities in order to find a job.
Moreover, we are going to improve or extend the high-quality learning opportunities tailored to the needs of each individual disadvantaged adult in our community to enhance their key competencies.

Excited about this learning journey and looking forward to achieving great results! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ€

First things first.

More than a month ago the first “Connectivity” meeting took place in Bergolo, Italy. While the weekend was hosted byย YOBBO – Youth Beyond Borders, all the other partners were represented by some of their key staff members.

Besides spending a beautiful weekend between hills and vineyards, we managed to meet, catch up with each other and define the structure of the upcoming three years of our cooperation.

Events, meetings and trainings full of surprise – we are very much looking forward to all of these! ๐ŸŒฟ What we know for sure though, is that our first training event will happen between the 24th and 29th of April 2020 in Ommen, the Netherlands.
