Recent testimonies of successful business networking - Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme
Period of exchange: 07/2017 until 01/2018
Duration of exchange: 6 months
Thanks to this exchange, Andrei had the opportunity to improve his organizational skills as together with the Geoclube’s team, he organised events and workshops in Gondomar where they promoted the Erasmus+ programme with a focus special on Volunteering opportunities for young people notably theEuropean Voluntary Service (EVS) and raised awareness about the cultural differences and other development opportunities in the EU.
The exchange objectives were divided in two categories; firstly, towards the personal and professional gain for Andrei, in terms of writing/implementation skills of Erasmus+ programmes (application forms) and non-formal facilitation experience gain and secondly, towards the development of a financial sustainable long-term plan for COSI and Human Resources strategy.
The October Erasmus+ deadline was the highest focus of the collaboration, whereas they jointly managed to apply with two Mobilities of Youth Workers (Geoclube) and two Mobilities of Youth Workers and one Youth Exchange (COSI). Moreover, throughout the non-formal workshops and events jointly implemented, Andrei gained important competences in both areas: project writing and non-formal education facilitation.
One of the other focus of the collaboration, was the development of a financial plan and a Human Resources strategy; time will show (2017-2020) if they will be sustainable. Andrei managed to acquire invaluable knowledge in these areas by working closely with Carlos.
