Get to know the NGO sector. Lead the change

Why is there a need?
New ways of working and more frequent changes in jobs (by necessity or opportunity) call for a broader set of skills. Transversal skills are those relevant to find jobs and occupations in different fields from the present or past ones. NGOs and youth workers in all of the partnering countries are lacking similar or same skills (securing funding and sustainability for their initiatives, presentation skills for their causes, strategic planning, understanding of cross-sectoral cooperation) and lack of standardized “set of core competencies for practicing youth work”.
