An average participation of 40 participants is expected. The workshop is aimed at all citizens over the age of 18 and with priority given to the 18-35 age group.
The activities, carried out with methodology mainly of dynamic animation alternating with some classroom moments, will be aimed at:

work on resistances, fears and limiting beliefs;

identify one’s plan of action.
The expected end result of the event is for participants to seize the opportunities offered by the program.
The activities scheduled for the empowerment workshop
A workshop consists of two sessions lasting about 2 hours each.
The first session is devoted to an activity of getting to know the participants and an initial analysis of the skills they possess. The EURES TMS initiative as a whole will then be presented with a mention of the registration platform. In the final part of the first phase, the empowerment pathway and action plan will be introduced, starting with each person’s goal within the EURES TMS initiative.
The second session of the workshop is focused on the empowerment part.
The introductory part will be devoted to a simulation of registration in the platform, which will be followed by an activity aimed at bringing out and considering in an employability perspective the skills possessed.
In the final part, the mobility path divided into stages will be analyzed, identifying, also through group work, potential detectable obstacles and possible solutions.
The activities are planned to be in-person and include the application of policies for contrasting covid-19.
In case of different indication from the authorities in charge, the activities could be rescheduled in online mode.
