MADE 4 YOUTH was a training course focused on the improvement of the decision-making process in Youth, during this training the participants learned new methods of decision making, project management, strategy, strategic thinking, leadership and entrepreneurship. We felt the need to have this training course because we wanted to improve young people’s lives regarding decision making and also to improve the quality of Erasmus+ projects. To accurately deliver, manage, implement and disseminate a project and therefore have an impact in young peoples’ lives and communities it is extremely relevant to know how to take decisions, being this especially hard for the newcomers in the Program or for those starting to write their first projects, managing groups or even starting a job in the field of youth.
Our aims were:
-to improve the project management competencies focusing on each phase of the project life, partnership and communication;
-to increase the understanding of different quality aspects of youth exchanges such as: project design connecting topics, objectives and activities, cooperation with partners, intercultural learning, learning assessment, impact and results;
-to provide an introduction to the Erasmus+: Youth in Action Programme, focusing on main features and priorities (mainly for newcomers to the programme);
-to critically reflect upon their previous international experience(s) -good and bad practices -as participants, coordinators or as partners;
-to experience a non-formal learning process and understand how to support young people’s learning process in the project;
