Personal development workshops for young beneficiaries of LEAD project

Health Action Overseas Foundation (HAO) organised personal development workshops at the headquarters of the Services Center for Supported Employment from Constanța. These workshops were named “This is how I am…How do you see me?”, and they were addressed to young adults from vulnerable groups, for example: young adults with disabilities, young adults no longer in the education system and who are not working or being trained for work, young Roma people.

These workshops were facilitated by our colleague, Olivia Grigore. She worked alongside the young participants in order to stimulate their self-perception and self-awareness, to increase their self-control and frustration tolerance, to develop their communication skills, creativity, spontaneity, attention and memory, and to help them break emotional blockages. Moreover, the young adults learned to understand and to respect the group’s rules, to collaborate with the other participants, and to work according to the facilitator’s requirements.

Olivia usedrole-playing, drawing, modeling and therapeutic stories, in order to stimulate the young adults to introduce themselves, to communicate with the other participants, to observe and be aware of the positive and negative aspects of themselves and their colleagues, and to involve in the teamwork. Also, the young adults were encouraged by Olivia, to talk about their achievements and their expectations regarding professional future and integration into society.

The project “Labour market Employment for young Adults with a Disability – LEAD” is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment.
