As part of the dissemination on the Erasmus + project “Increasing Quality of Activities Targeting Rural Youth”, our organization created and coordinated 3 dissemination activities. The first dissemination activity was held on 5 of November, 2019 in Ioannina University Greece and 15 young participants took part in it. The participants had a warm welcome, and the Staff presented themselves and their role in the organization. Then a short presentation about our organization was held, and our main aims and goals were presented. Also the aim of this event was explained. In order to get to know each other, the participants played few name games and icebreakers, such as “Two truths and one lie” and “Candy Introductions”. The main activity on this event was presenting to the participants, social skills for success in the business department. The participants had the opportunity to learn basic social skills in business, to increase their confidence and self-esteem. They also learned how to improve their conversation skills, with tips on how to start, continue and end a conversation, and how to approach networking events with strategy, skill and less anxiety. Later the participants worked in small groups and where given specific topics to evolve in a conversation, based on the skills they learned.

During the event, different tools from non-formal education were used as interesting name games, presentations, discussions, question and answers session etc.
