Stowarzyszenie na rzecz Inicjatyw Lokalnych Społeczności „SILS”
Association for local community initiatives „SILS”
Established in 2010, from the beginning focused on non-formal youth education placed on rural areas. Main aim is to work with young people who are entering the labor market and prepare them for this part of life. Workshops that we do are focused on: entrepreneurial , foreign languages, first aid, labor market, team building and local societies issues. For such projects we are successfully gaining money from government and EU grants. We are planning to make a step forward and give new possibilities to young people we are working with and show them what being a EU citizen means.
In 2016 we started our Erasmus+ journey. First approved youth exchange was “Movie it”. multilateral 8-day long project which aims to enhance youngster’s communication skills as well as to show the effective way to communicate using video as a tool within the frame of Erasmus+ Programme. It gathered 42 youngsters including 6 youth leaders from Cyprus, Italy, Romania, Spain, Poland and Slovakia and it was held in Środa Wielkopolska, Poland from 16 to 23 of November 2016. This project was be an opportunity for young people to understand what are communication skills, why do we need it and how to get to people through a video. Participants had not only straighten their cultural competences, by working in an intercultural environment, but also grasped the concept of tolerance and mutual understanding. Each day we used the methodology of non-formal education such as, simulations, brainstorming, role-playing and open space discussions in order to introduce to participants the issue of communication skills and social media.
