COACHING TOOLS for youth personal development


Coaching Tools for youth personal development (project reference: 2020-3-PL01-KA205-094960) is a project co-financed by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Programme and is promoted by the Foundation Center for Creative Activities (CAT) from Poland in coopration with: OpenCom issic (Italy), Cazalla Intercultural (Spain) and Cooperativa Sociale Milepiedi (Italy). 

MOOC course COACHING TOOLS is a complementary element of the second part of the project which is the guidebook. Those who use the guide and will do a MOOC course will be able to use the tools described in it to work with young people from the age of 10. 

Both tools are designed to help teachers, youth workers and career advisors.

We intend to contribute to the training of teachers toward orientation teaching that is innovative and based on an international comparison. We intend to encourage the use in schools of non-formal education/education methods that also, from an educational point of view, can lead young people with fewer opportunities to create their projects step by step, feeling responsible and responsible for their growth actions.
