Euro< 26 Poland Partnership
Young Scot is currently working in partnership with the EYCA member in Poland -Polish Youth Projects Association- and the Eurodesk provider Morena on a European Social Funded project. Euro<26 Poland currently have a youth card, but wish to develop wider services for young people similar to those provided by Young Scot.
Members of the Young Scot team attended the launch of the project in Gdansk at the beginning of the summer and have since hosted a study visit and a workshop to assist Polish Youth Projects Association to establish a network of youth organisations across Poland and develop a practical toolkit, to build the capacity of this network in delivering information, training and funding.
The toolkit will stand alone, to be used by NGO's working with young people at a local level, and will set the foundations for future projects to build upon.
Action plans and tools for each strand of the project have now been developed and work will continue to create a comprehensive toolkit.
EURO<26 Romania Start-You Project
Young Scot is a partner of EURO<26 Romania in the delivery of the Start-You project funded through the European Social Fund. Euro<26 Romania currently have a youth card and are in the process of developing wider services for young people similar to those provided by Young Scot, including information provision and training.
The key aim of this project is to develop an information service for young people in Romania, with a particular focus on employability and entrepreneurship. The activities of the project aim to engage, inform, stimulate and support increased employability and enterprising behaviour across Romania’s youth.
Young Scot’s role within the project is to share best practice on how we currently deliver products and services, the networks and models we have established and developed to assist in this delivery and provide practical tools to enable such practices to be potentially adapted and adopted in Romania. In addition to exploring the activities of Young Scot, it is also part of our partnership to share and explore how wider employability and enterprise infrastructures in Scotland operate and deliver relevant services.
A delegation from Romania visited Scotland in June to develop their knowledge of Young Scot as well as gain insights from organisations supporting youth enterprise in Scotland. A further study visit is planned for 2012.
We have been developing and sharing information on youth enterprise in Scotland with the Start You project partners. To find more of this information, please visit youngscot.org and youngscotextra.orgfor information articles on employability and enterprise.
