About the group
The overall objective of this group is to transfer to youth workers and NGOs innovative training methodologies to improve guidance and counselling, vocational and professional training in EU and Latin America for young women returning to work after a hiatus in their careers, as a result of maternity, illness, unemployment, or who are in a situation of self-employment.
The group aims at the creation and presentation of a capacity building project in the field of youth and at fostering the use of ICT and wishes to encourage the use of these tools applied to this target group to improve the quality of learning, provide access to resources and services online, providing feedback on progress and create the conditions for increasing skills and self‐esteem of women in situations of crisis and with difficulties in gaining access to a profession. The acquisition of new skills, fostering creativity and innovation, the development of entrepreneurship and a smooth transition between jobs will be crucial in a world that offers more job opportunities for those who show greater adaptability. The group and the future project wants to equip youth workers with all the necessary tools and skills to provide women with fewer opportunities who somehow find themselves, voluntarily or involuntarily unemployed, skills to integrate the labour market again: through the creation of self-employment or with the acquisition of new skills in the areas of ICT and entrepreneurship which will enable them to perform computing tasks on the user's perspective.
