youth, youth leaders, volunteers, who need training in financial literacy (FL) and/or would like to become able to share it with their peers back home.
• Motivate the participants to reflect on their past experience and to identify best practices, creative tools in order to gain knowledge and skills of FL;
• To offer an opportunity for self-assessment of the participants, the embedding of the findings in the personal/professional development plan;
• To give the participants a possibility to train some basic business skills, for example through simulation games and facilitating their final products. So to increase sense of initiative and entrepreneurship;
• To give the participants the possibility to experience the dynamics of the multicultural group through multiple layers of sharing experiences and learn from each other;
• To empower youth by providing them tools for successful personal budget planning and management;
• Raise awareness about learning opportunities in Erasmus + projects for young people.
Main elements of the project: non-formal based methodology, based on learning by doing, highly participative, brainstorming, stimulation, and role games, visual and digital tools (video, photography, etc), basic business workshops, presentations, Study visits, etc. Today many European countries addressed the challenges of developing a national strategy for financial education. Some countries, for example as the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic (who are partners in this project), have revised or are revising their first national strategy, Portugal and Turkey are implementing their first one, others are in the process of designing/ developing their first national strategy. To take into account the variety of (public and other) stakeholders with an interest and expertise in financial education, some countries have created collective bodies that are involved to various extents in the leadership and implementation of the national strategy. These bodies involve, depending on country circumstances and context, non-profit and private institutions alongside public ones. We believe that our project has the opportunity to raise awareness of training in financial literacy among non-profit organizations, as well as youth. We aimed to support the comfortable transition of financial literacy knowledge and skills to the young generation with the assistance of partner organizations and the local community.
The course foresees a participation fee as a contribution to the program, but money shouldn’t be the only obstacle against your participation. Participation/Contribution fee: 20 euro. A modest contribution from participants to the overall costs of a project helps to create a sense of investment and ownership as well as participants tend to value what they receive more when they have contributed to it. Those costs will contribute to the implementation of the project activities and raising the quality of the educational part as well as the overall project management. Participation fee can be paid by cash upon arrival.
