Shape your future Erasmus+ final event

Erasmus+ Event | Shape Your Future

On the 4th May 2023, we held our final event for the Erasmus+ Shape Your Future Project in Dublin! More than 30 participants took part and learned about the project resources and activities.


The Project

The Shape Your Future project was designed to help disadvantaged young people find opportunities in the labour market and develop entrepreneurial skills. The project also targeted youth workers and its resources helped them work with youth more effectively both in-person and online.

The project involved 5 partner countries: Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Romania & Spain. It included the organisation of 5 mobilities for youth workers and young people as well as the creation of 3 resources: the platform, the mobile application for Apple and Android, and the booklet.

The event

37 young people and youth workers from Ronanstown Youth Service and Lucan Youth Service took part in our Erasmus+ event last week.

We started off by presenting the Erasmus+ programme, the project objectives, the local activities and the mobilities we organised during the project.

We moved on to introducing the outupts and we asked them to test the resources created. They gave us very valuable feedback on usability, content and possible use at their youth centres.

We are proud to announce that the Shape Your Future website and application was successful among participants.

Young people were interested in the job and erasmus opportunities they found in the platform. Youth workers found the courses and the resources very useful for the activities with their cohort.

We also distributed the booklet containing 40 non-formal activities for youth workers’ future sessions with young people.

What’s next

Although the Shape your Future has come to an end, the resources will be available online on the Shape Your Future Platform! You will find available job, volunteering and youth exchange opportunities from around Europe to apply for. You can also take 3 free courses on employability and entrepreneurship and download the booklet.

We also have other upcoming mobilities and local activities as part of our Erasmus+ projects! Stay tuned on our FB page to take part in our opportunities, fully founded by the Erasmus+ Programme!
