Time management and scheduling skills, problem solving and resolution of conflicts, money
management, leadership, patience and so on, are skills that parents learn and use daily but often those skills are difficult to underline during a job interview or to justify into a CV. The learning path will help those parents in recognizing, using and exploiting those skills in a work environment. This project matches the priority of social inclusion; young parents, especially young mothers find troubles in reconciling jobs and family and, especially in partner countries, young mothers are particularly exposed to unemployment and social exclusion. Additionally, it matches the sectoral priority of promoting empowerment for youth. Regarding the upon mentioned skills that the selected target group (young parents) acquires through their parental experience, placing weight in the management skills, the project aims to promote empowerment, training young parents (under 30) to obtain a high quality work and job interview competencies and/or to create their own entrepreneurship path.

(published on 06/05/2017)

As information technology becomes more robust and easier to use, it increasingly permeates academic activities in adult education. The use of technology in education, commonly defined as e-learning, has become a standard component in many courses. Technology applications are not limited to the classroom – they are also replacing some classroom sessions with virtual sessions, or fully replacing classroom courses with online courses.

The main preference of our result that it is fully distance learning, the participants will have the facilities to have the courses, exams from home. The new methods of our development can be useful for online training courses in the fields of youth, youth workers, or NGO support.

Successful sustainable development project in Ostoros, Hungary
Creative PET bottles
(published on 12/02/2017)

PET bottle is a really creative think... In households we often find it unusefull and we try to get rid of them. But think about a little - what can we do from this bottles in a creative way?

Bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET, sometimes PETE) can be "recycled" to reuse the material out of which they are made and to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills. PET is semiporous and absorbs molecules of the food or beverage contained, and the residue is difficult to remove: Heating the plastic enough for sterilization would destroy it. Therefore, most recycled bottles are used to make lower grade products, such as carpets. To make a food grade plastic, the bottles need to be hydrolysed down to monomers, which are purified and then re-polymerised to make new PET. These bottles are also recycled as-is (re-used) for various purposes, including for use in school projects, and for use in solar water disinfection in developing nations, in which empty PET bottles are filled with water and left in the sun to allow disinfection by ultraviolet radiation. PET is useful for this purpose because most other materials (including glass) that are transparent to visible light are opaque to ultraviolet radiation.

In our project we had several target groups from student to parents, from youngsters to adults and families. The inhabitants of Ostoros had the facilities to take part in different aware-rising programmes, they could built a PET bottle christmas tree, and could create creative household devices, and playthings during the 6 months long project.

Popularization of grassroots sports at primary schools of the region
Ball games for health
(published on 04/09/2017)

Understanding the issue and implications of different methods of training activities in sport is difficult. Due to the comfortable lifestyle, in general people do not want to deal with the issue and prefer the delinquents to be put away. However, locked facilities do not provide adequate solutions; they only exacerbate the problem. If a child with limited physical activity does not receive appropriate examples he is most likely to grow up to be a problematic adult at his health; dealing with these individuals costs a lot to society (maintaining locked facilities, social transfers, broken carriers, reproducing disruptive behavior patterns in family, etc). There is no existing standard measurement tool for impact evaluation in the youth field, yet, if vulnerable youths do not receive support they will be robbed off their future.

During our 2 months long project we visited 10 primary schools of our region and we organized different kind of ball games (handball, basketball, volleyball, football) to popularize the importance of physical activitiy throught ball sports in local level. This events were spectacular days with as many partner from the flelds of sport and healthcare as possible.
