Youth Coaching for Well-being and Employement
A significant problem in recent years in the European Union is the increase in the number of young people at risk, particularly in the number of NEETs (youth not in Education, Employment or Training).
WELL-BE had two main priorities:
(1) to support young people to find a job / continue their studies – by offering coaching and mentorship personalized.
(2) to equip youth workers with the knowledge, tools and skills regarding youth coaching and mentoring.
The project consisted of 2 Training Courses (TC):
TC 1 – in Denmark: Experiment and acquire coaching and mentoring techniques. The participants will train their coaching skills and access knowledge on the subject.
TC 2 – in Romania: Developing a model of coaching intervention for youth. The youth workers meet again to share good practices, weaknesses and tools, what tools worked and what did not, and develop a high-quality coaching model for different youth categories.
