MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM…
Causeland Ambassadors is an innovative gamified training program, based on the successful experience of the New Media Ambassadors program created by GEYC in 2013.
It is created under the framework of the KA2 Erasmus+ project – Get to know the NGO sector - Lead the Change - Causeland. The project is run by a consortium with four participating countries, namely Romania (GEYC), Italy (Tu First), Iceland (North Consulting) and Bulgaria (Bfree and Concepti).
The project aims to develop training materials and guidelines that can be used by organizations in Europe and worldwide to provide their target audience with knowledge about the NGO sector, focusing on soft skills (teamwork, interpersonal and communication skills, time management, etc.) and practical knowledge. This way the employability of the youth will be fostered, and the NGO sector will get more prepared professionals.
WHY IS THIS A GREAT LEARNING OPPORTUNITY?
Because it depends on you how much time you decide to put in and learn more about the topics. You can earn as much as 8 points per week for the tasks that you complete, and weekly we will publish the ranking. Nothing wrong with a little bit of healthy “competition”! :D
As a participant of this program, you will:
Have access to multimedia resources;
Have the possibility of networking with other young Europeans;
Have the constant feedback of the team of trainers on the completion of the tasks;
Receive recognition for your results: all graduates receive a completion certificate and online badge, while the top 3 graduates receive a “magna cum laude” distinction and an online recommendation from the project consortium.
