Out of the Box International  works further to enhance current cooperation in South East Europe region and actively supports the integration of all European countries in common European project.

The project titled ”Include Me – Creation of the Training Scheme for Prevention of Early School Leaving” is mainly aimed at building the capacity of youth workers and youth organizations to create innovative non-formal education methods that will help young people with poor school performance not to fall out from formal education system, labor market and society. The project is realized under the programme Erasmus plus, Key Action 2 Capacity Building in the field of Youth. The partners on the project include LIBERO- Serbia (Lead Partner), Technical School Obrenovac (Serbia), TiPovej (Slovenia), PRONI Center for youth development (Bosnia&Herzegovina), Kosova Young Lawyers (Kosovo), JEF Montenegro (Montenegro) and MOJU (Portugal) which collaborated on the project from November 2015 – October 2016.

The project’s main objectives are to create cross-sectoral cooperation between youth organizations, educational institutions and the business sector in order to create new approaches for the preparation of young people with poor school performance to enter the labour market. Furthermore, the project aims to build the capacity of youth organizations trough mobility activities, a study visit and a training to produce flexible learning methods for young people with poor school performance, thus decreasing early school leaving. Finally, the project’s objective is to launch, test and implement this new training scheme and an online training kit ensuring better access to the labour market and self-employment of young people with poor school performance. The project’s main activities include: a Stakeholders meeting and Study Visit on Early School Leaving and Low School Performance, a Training course for youth workers and teachers and the production of a Manual and Training Scheme for improving low school performance of students and increasing their motivation for Education.

Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
