The project will target young women and men aged between 15 and 35 years old, particularly those with fewer opportunities and support them to get a job or start their own business.
ACTIONS IN BRIEF
The project will establish 16 (SKYE) Youth Clubs in 4 regions of Georgia , in which 320 young adults meet weekly for 2-3 hours to have fun, learn, and serve their communities together. A SKYE Club is typically made up of approximately 20-25 youth (aged 18-26) which helps disadvantaged youth develop the skills, behaviors and attitudes necessary to obtain sustainable livelihoods and participate constructively in their communities. The clubs are led by volunteer SKYE Club Leaders in the community. These Leaders use a curriculum based on experiential learning methodologies to help the members cultivate competencies in the areas of active citizenship, leadership, employability and entrepreneurship. The project will also develop a work-based learning (WBL) tool for three (3) agrarian and agro-tourism professions.
