ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT: Develop your soft skills through physical activity.

Background

Soft skills are extremely important in the job market. Research confirms that the development of these skills is possible through physical activities and sports. Find out how you can develop your competencies with the Active Development project.

Are you a youth leader, teacher, or youth coordinator? Do you want to develop soft skills in your students that will help them succeed in the job market, regardless of their profession?

Do you realise how important soft skills are on the labour market, but you don't know how you can support young people in their development?

ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT this is something for you. Use the games we have prepared for your school or organisation. Combine youth sports and physical activity with the development of key competencies.

Objectives

The objectives of the Active Development project:

  • Enhance Soft Skills Among Youth: The primary objective of the project is to augment the level of soft skills among youth.

  • Empowerment of Youth: The project is committed to empowering young people, helping them to grow in confidence, and fostering their ability to effect change within their communities and beyond.

  • Enhance Quality in Youth Work: The project aims to improve the quality of youth work by equipping youth leaders with new and innovative methodologies that can facilitate better outcomes.

  • Promote Inclusion: The project aims to contribute to better integration of youth from diverse backgrounds. This ensures that all young people have the opportunity to participate and benefit from the project’s initiatives.

  • Foster Employability of Youth: By focusing on the enhancement of soft skills, the project seeks to increase the employability of young people, particularly those with fewer opportunities.

Pilot Project in Norway: Collective Innovation volunteers organised a localised pilot activity at Labakken Skole in Faerder Kommune in April 2023 as part of the ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT project. The event, called "Active Development: Fostering Soft Skills Through Sports and Physical Activities," was designed exclusively for 10 young people aged 14 to 16 who had restricted possibilities. Two youth workers joined them, emphasising the need to provide them with instruments to assist skill-building through physical activities. The primary purpose of this pilot was to improve the youth's interpersonal and soft skills through engaging sports activities. This event's feedback and insights will be invaluable in developing the ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT programmes for a broader audience.

Pilot Project in Poland: In the beginning of 2023, in order to validate ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT games, My Future volunteers conducted pilot projects during which they tested games with ideas for activities. The participants were first-year students from five different high schools. The aim of the pilot project was to introduce students to the ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT project, emphasise the importance of soft skills on the labour market, and test the games developed by My Future. Based on the pilot project, the games were further developed and tested on an international pilot project in Portugal.

International Pilot Project in Portugal: In May 2023, youth leaders My Future, Collective Innovation, and EduPlus, along with selected participants from Poland, Portugal, and Norway, met in Braga to validate ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT games as part of an international pilot project.

Dissemination Event in Norway: (November 2023)

As part of the active development project, we had an interview with successful athlete and entrepreneur Allan Daniel Corona from Oslo.
