SUMMARY OF THE ACTIVITY
The main goal of the activity is to improve ICT skills for job, especially, safety online skills and encourage young people (NEETs) to choose ICT career participating in the activity. The activity was developed for the 2017 campaign, which was a great possibility to promote the country needs for ICT jobs and to give inspiration for young people to get acquainted with their peers work experience, acquire skills mostly needed in the labour market of today.
We have come with this activity idea to one of the business companies in Vilnius. Together with their volunteers a seminar format has been developed as well as activity planning during the campaign.
The main idea of the seminar was to have activities which are motivating, attractive, interesting, up-to–date, providing possibility to discuss, ask questions, compete, listen to inspiring lectures. The activity was planned to be organized in 37 Youth Job Centers across the country. It was agreed with the company volunteers to prepare a unique seminar content, scenario, materials and deliver the activity during the campaign – no matter which position they were in.
The activity was targeted to NEETs, so the main objectives of this 2-hour workshop are:
1) invite private business employees/VOLUNTEERS to join the campaign;
2) Improve ICT skills for NEETS emphasysing security online;
3) encourage young people to choose ICT career.
One more objective is to enter into cooperation with 37 Youth Job Centres situated in different regions of Lithuania.
