Crucial Conversation is a project funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+ programme that was initiated as a solution to tackle youth unemployment. The project reunited 7 organisations from Romania, Czech Republic, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia, Portugal and Lithuania and addressed a very specific cause of youth unemployment: the problem of low levels of communicational competences of young people in accessing labor market. An interlinked problem that was identified within the partnership was the low level of communicational competences of youth workers from the partner organisations in creating nonformal learning contexts that contributes to higher youth’s employability.
First one, a training course took place between 18-26 April 2018 aimed to support 32 youth workers to master the complexity of the processes of organisational communication, process communication, intra and interpersonal communication in order to coordinate nonformal activities on communication that will boost local youths’ employability.
Second one, a youth exchange that took place 18-25 June 2018 aimed to develop key competences for 48 young participants by creating a context in which young people exchange ideas, values and perspectives on employment and the important role communication processes have in this field
