TAKE THE FIELD! – YOUNG BUILD THEIR OWN LIFELONG PROJECT is an European project of Regione Lombardia – Directorate Sport and Youth Policy, funded with support from the European Commission.
The project helps the young who are interested in the development of their own entrepreneurial idea.
It aims to support young, individual or groups, willing to develop their skills and improve their spirit of initiative, creativity and entrepreneurship in social, touristic and cultural fields.
The favorite target of the project are young people from 16 to 25 years old and trainers who work in the field of youth. Particular attention will be paid, during engagement, to the involvement of young people with fewer opportunities and disabilities
Take The Field is based on TRAINING GROUNDS, workshops and platforms where youth can develop their life skills and get in touch with businesses and local organizations that support their ideas, helping them to keep in touch with the social needs.
Training grounds will be implemented in all the countries partner of the project. Periodic update meetings will be held among European youth’s working groups (via conference call) in which young workers will present the progress of their ideas.
The youth’s business ideas developed in each country will be presented in a European meeting: “European Training Ground – The Field of Youth Ideas”.
During all the project representatives of educational institutions, enterprises, public and private bodies will be involved. The project deals with the creation of a national and international dialogue with key stakeholders (politicians, administrators, educational institutions, associations, companies) with the aim of working together to allow the entry of the young into the world of work and of a civil society. Take The Field! Represent the opportunity of defining an educational innovative model based primarily on the involvement of young people in all stages of the project as actors and authors of their educational process.
