Youth Council Next Generation – Capacity Building Activity 1 – CV writing

As part of the dissemination on the Erasmus + project “Increasing Quality of Activities Targeting Rural Youth”, our organization created and coordinated 8 capacity building activities.

The first activity was held on 5th of August, 2019 in Hotel Solferino, Struga and 10 young participants took part in it.

The participants were welcomed, and the Staff presented themselves and their role in the organization. After that there was a short presentation about our organization, our main aims and goals. Then the aim of this event was explained.

Few name games and icebreakers, such as “Name and adjective” and “Great Wind Blows” were held, for the participants to get to know each other.

The main activity on this event was teaching the participants from rural areas about “CV writing”. This session was held by a staff member from our organization and the process of writing a great CV was explained in details. After this the participants did a trial writing of CV, and the trainer gave feedback and comments of how and where they can do better. They were introduced to EuroPass, and creating CV using this online tool.

After this, the staff held a presentation of the Erasmus + programme, and it’s many possibilities for the youth, with Q&A session. Then the participants played a Kahoot quiz, just so they can see how much they learned about Erasmus + programme.

The project “Increasing Quality of Activities Targeting Rural Youth” was presented and also future events, projects and possibilities that the participants can take part in.

This event was important for the participants because they had the opportunity to learn something valuable these days, since looking for a job and getting one successfully is a serious part of their lives.

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