The last week of September it was the first meeting of our LEMON Network in Pau (France). This Netwrok strated to work together in 2015 for the support of to provide structural support, referred to as operating grant, to European non-governmental organisations (ENGOs) and EU-wide networks active in the field of education and training or in the field of youth. This already the second Lemon Network project. The goal of the one day meeting to make stronger our Network and planing together our next project all together. In this Network we have 12 countires and 13 association. We shared our internal startegie. We also planned how we will commicate during the next 3 years all together. We changed information about European Solidarity Corp (ESC) knowledge. Finaly we agreed on our next meeting it will be in Croatia in Spring 2019. The meeting was short, intensive and hopefuly fruitfull for our European cooperation. We will continue in Petrinja (HR) next year:-).
Fekete Sereg Youth Association implemented the Comp-Pass project’s local workshops in January 2018, in Nagyvázsony where the Hungarian organization is working since 1997. We organized a weekend-long session for the participants using the Real-E method, the board game, and the e-Portfolio. The sessions were led by Rita Kandikó, the chairperson of the association and Dávid Üregi who took part as a youth worker in the project and participated in the international seminar in Rome where the partner organizations acquired knowledge about the use of the Real-E method. It was not too easy to find the people with the fitting profile for this event. During the selection and recruitment process, we took into consideration many possibilities but it turned out that it is not easy to find real NEETs. They might belong to this group on paper but in the real life, they are not. The majority of them are still working even if they are not registered as an official employee, therefore, they are forming part of the grey economy. After all, we involved some of the ex-EVS volunteers who came back recently after they had finished their services abroad and also invited a couple of youngsters who are about to start European Voluntary Service abroad in the near future. Also, we have tried to spread the idea of our workshop online, so we advertised it on our Facebook page and we get some nice and promising feedbacks. In one case a totally stranger guy from literally the other side of the country came and participated in this event thanks to our online campaign. The group of the participants was quite complex. We involved people with very different profiles, from the “simple” high school graduates to youth with a university background and many experiences. It was a great group because despite to the different backgrounds they managed to work together very well and they complemented each other during the exercises. Based on the feedbacks from the participants it was a pretty good event and overall everyone evaluated it as a useful and successful session. If we have to rank the elements of the workshop than definitely the video making/storytelling was the most popular. We involved a professional who is making videos for a living therefore good quality clips were made which was a unique opportunity for the participants and all of them liked it a lot. And the exercises during the board game were also really positive. Those tasks gave a huge help to the participants to discover their own strengths and skills and also were enjoyable at the same time. However, the feedbacks on the e-Portfolio was not such a huge blast. There were many questions risen connecting that element of the project. We considered the program as an extra help for the participant to successfully reintegrate into the labor market and get a decent job in the near future. Maybe because of this the e-Portfolio seemed just another type of online CV and the participants had doubts about the efficiency of it. It seemed that among the NEETs without a background in the higher education the e-Portfolio part was a bit dry and boring. Probably the description of the skills was a bit too complex or complicated and it seemed that for some of the participants it was not as important as other elements. Apart from this workshop, we had a couple of other participants. With them, we had more like a one-on-one or a small group tutoring session where we helped them with the story telling and the e-Portfolio. This way it was a little bit different because the advantages of the board game couldn’t be highlighted that much but we had positive results doing the workshop this way as well. The overall evaluation of the Comp-Pass project is quite positive. The methods from the international training helped a lot during the implementation phase of the Comp-Pass project and after all the Fekete Sereg Youth Organization benefited a lot from this project, learned new methods and ways, received new tools what can be really efficient in the preparation of the future volunteers.
