The objectives of this project were:

  • Facilitate self-awareness and skill development through practical training in various professional sectors.

It was carried out with a group of 15 young people between 16 and 29 years old who were neither studying nor working. The majority lacked higher education and came from rural municipalities.

The training took place over 3 months and was structured around 3 training modules: Job skills and career guidance, visits to local companies and initiatives related to circular and sustainable economy, and practical training in 4 different sectors, alternating each week between organic farming, bakery, cooking, and service.

Rotating through different trades facilitates self-awareness and the development of various important skills for job placement.
