ABOUT THE PROJECT

BRAVE PROJECT

Aims to empower unemployed adults who have difficulties in finding a new employment because of the increasingly specialised skills required by the market. To this end, BRAVE develops specific learning paths supporting adults to reconsider their life and expectations and to become aware of their own professional ambitions and objectives, as a way to reach their own personal fulfilment. The learning path is focused both on personal and social skills and on entrepreneurial skills, finalized to the prototyping of participants’ business models. The project provides skills at every level tailored on the new requisites demanded (basic, transversal & soft skills, entrepreneurial, foreign language & digital skills).

TARGET GROUP
BRAVE empowers & motivates unemployed adults at risk of exclusion or adults willing to change their professional profile to raise their potentials & make them aware of their powers for the social good, for their personal growth & positioning in society. This was done through an innovative journey passing by self-development, creative thinking & exploration of own possibilities & potentials.

RESULTS
Increased participants self-confidence, awareness, proactiveness and satisfaction towards one’s own future, wishes and opportunities, that reflect also on their families’ quality of life; increased social and communication skills, assertiveness; enhanced ICT/English language skills and digital competences; increased self-entrepreneurship, employability, courage to take challenges and confront with peers from other countries; new knowledge on business creation and development.

DURATION
The duration of the BRAVE Project was 24 months: from the 1st November 2017 to the 31st October 2019

The Project is funded by the European Commission in the framework of Erasmus+ programme – KA2 Strategic Partnerships in the field of Adult education.
