YSEEAM takes roots on the threshold of an approaching Fourth Industrial Revolution in which automation and massive digitalization is predicted to radically alter the status-quo relation between trainers- trainees, youth workers – youths and their place in the learning process; as well as the future’s changeable Skills Demand. Entrepreneurship – Analytical thinking – Leadership and Social Influence are predicted by World Economic Forum (2018) to continue to be most essential skills for future jobs. In the face of those challenges, youth work shall need to anticipate trends and adapt to new technological changes in order to confirm its indispensable role in the new digital age.
The project aims to consolidate the role of youth workers in promoting youth social entrepreneurship by enriching them with the core knowledge of social entrepreneurship, youth work skills, and particularly the technical know-how to open their relevant courses on MOODLE as a new, innovative, far-reaching way of doing youth work. Simultaneously, YSEEAM aspires to develop a new form of youth work methods in the efforts to make its digital shift.
Taking into account the inherent global factor of entrepreneurship and digital learning, YSEEAM consortium brings together 7 partners from three continents for wider and enriching realities and viewpoints. There will be 3 partners from Europe (Italy- Coordinator, Denmark and Greece), 2 partners from Asia (Indonesia and Nepal), and 2 partners from Africa (Ghana and South Africa) and SEDARVP GHANA, led by Founder and President, Abukari Shaibu Niendow, and, Director of Policy and Research, Alhassan Rabiu, is proud to represent mother Ghana in this partnership project. SEDARVP GHANA leads a specific project, “Smock Making as a Start-up Entrepreneurial Opportunity for Socioeconomically Excluded Youth in Northern Ghana”. This project aims to build the social and economic capacities of these youth, using smock making. #YSEEAM2020
