Taking Chances!

Training Course

Taking Chances! is a training on the spirit of initiative and entrepreneurial attitude for youth workers in inclusive youthwork.
Empowerment of young people, the spirit of initiative and entrepreneurial learning are key words in this training. Why? Because that’s where many things start when it comes to opportunities and chances for young people to change, also when it comes to employment. This training is about how to stimulate and spark a mindset and attitude amongst your young people in Taking Chances! Entrepreneurship and personal leadership are a necessity to take a next step and succeed in life. Active citizenship is the opposite of victim behavior.
