On behalf of European Union- Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) has announce the result Erasmus + Capacity Building of Youth grants project entitle: Youth Social Entrepreneurship Education for All with Moodle (YSEEAM) was selected for funding FY 2019-2021. YSEEAM is youth capacity building exchange programme Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. YSEEAM takes roots on the threshold of an approaching Fourth Industrial Revolution in which automation and massive digitalization is predicted to radically alter the status-quo relation between trainers- trainees, youth workers – youths and their place in the learning process; as well as the future’s Skills Demand. Entrepreneurship – Analytical thinking – Leadership and Social Influence are predicted by World Economic Forum (2018) to continue to be most essential skills for future jobs. In the face of those challenges, youth work shall need to anticipate trends and adapt to new technological changes in order to confirm its indispensable role in the new digital age.
The project aims to consolidate the role of youth workers in promoting youth social entrepreneurship by enriching them with the core knowledge of social entrepreneurship, youth work skills, and particularly the technical know-how to open their relevant courses on MOODLE as a new, innovative, far-reaching way of doing youth work. Simultaneously, YSEEAM aspires to develop a new form of youth work methods in the efforts to make its digital shift.
