For us, the team of Business Foundation for Education, it is a pleasure to share with you the news that we have successfully implemented one the projects in which we have represented Bulgaria – Be Positive. The project has been funded with the support of the European Commission and has been implemented by partners from Bulgaria, Austria, Greece, Spain and the United Kingdom and is coordinated by Folkuniversitetet from Sweden.
The project is addressing the needs of young people, in particular NEETs and the professionals working with them. Approximately 14 million individuals in Europe are NEETs – young people aged between 15-29 years who are not in employment, education or training.
The participants in the training program elaborated by the UK partner in cooperation with the other experts in the project, will be prepared not only to adapt to potentially stressful events and successfully assimilate these, but also to use these potential stressors as opportunities for positive growth based on identification and utilisation of key Positive Psychology constructs and processes.
In Bulgaria the training program has been piloted with 43 young people in Shumen and Burgas.
You can find the training modules and many ideas for exercises to be implemented on the project website as well as the Booklet which gives opportunity to taste the whole course and includes the training program presentation and examples of relevant activities and additional materials.
More information about the project and the training materials can be found on the on the project website – http://www.bpositive.eu/. They will be available for free of charge use during the following 5 years.
