My name is Omer and I am one of the lucky ones that got the chance to attend the Training Course “Step Forward to Entrepreneurship and Employability’’ which was held between 26 September – 2 October 2018 in Milicz, Lower Silesia region of Poland.
First thing I need to admit that training was very well organized. The content was very interesting and the discussions were truly inspiring. I enjoyed the visual sessions a lot, they made the subject easy to understand. The main objectives of the training were to increase competencies of youth workers, leaders, mentors tutors working with EVS program; to identify and explore the needs and interests of EVS volunteers related to employability and entrepreneurship as well as increasing entrepreneurial mindset. Another important aspect of training was to support networking and brainstorming ideas for new projects that might improve the quality of voluntary and EVS services.
One day we visited local NGO’s, which are working with people with special needs. They work with kindergarten kids as well as with the grown-ups. There are so many different options available to ensure that people are continually evolving. Also I enjoyed the role plays activity that we had about creating new business ideas and then we reflect about it. On the last day we did a presentation about our social entrepreneurship idea in front of jury and students; it was an amazing experience for me and for all my friends there. All the participants had a smooth communication and positive synergy with trainers. They were really experienced and well prepared for workshops. They also made very friendly atmosphere on the training and thanks of that group become really integrated. I’ve learned a lot from participants as well, some of them had big knowledge and they shared with us their experience. The most important part was that we already have an idea about our Social Entrepreneurship which shows how useful the training was. We are going to realize our project idea soon! I surely recommend this kind of training’s to all my colleagues and friends. I personally would love to attend future training’s which will take place in Macedonia or abroad.
