Wisemind Project

The Wise Mind Project with 2019-2-TR01-KA205-078707 contract number has been supported by European Commission via Turkish National Agency within the scope of Erasmus+ Key Action 2 Youth and coordinated by Istanbul Provincial Directorate of Family, Labour and Social Services (IFLSS) from 01/11/2019 – 31/10/2022 in cooperation with 9 partners in total: Governorship of Istanbul, Istanbul University – Cerrahpasa, Başlangıç (International Association of New Beginnings by Prevention and Treatment of Trauma), YOUNET (Italy), Youth for Equality (Slovakia), Anata Foundation (The Netherlands), Drosostalida (Greece) and Human&Longevity (Bulgaria). The target groups of the Wise Mind Project is traumatised young people and the youth workers working with them. Young people may experience emotional, physical and psychological difficulties in their daily lives due to the trauma they have experienced. This situation can affect the youth workers working with them psychologically, physically and emotionally, too. Youth workers play an active role in solving the problems of disadvantaged young people in the society. In order to provide effective solutions in these process, a youth worker must be self-sufficient spiritually, physically and socially. However, with daily life stress burden and intense work pressure, youth workers do not know how to behave in times of crisis, as a result, they see themselves inadequate in solving young individuals’ problems and feel exhausted. Youth workers need to learn how to manage the process for the well-being of both young people and themselves. Since there is not any method to follow in situations such as crisis and stress management, they cannot respond to the demands of young people with demanded efficiency. In order to improve these situations, it was necessary to prepare a guide that can be used in many areas.

The intended results are as follows:

-Managing the problems they have in daily life with specific crisis management techniques which will be developed,

– Developing skills to reduce the frequency and severity of behavioural crisis

– Preparing a crisis management guide that can be used by professionals (youth workers) to facilitate the lives of disadvantaged young people in society in order to enable them to deal effectively with the problems they face.

– Increasing the mental, physical and social endurance of professionals (youth workers) to better cope with the moment of crisis and to manage stress successfully.

– It is aimed to ensure that professionals (youth workers) manage crises better by changing their behaviours and produce more effective solutions to solve the problems of young people they are responsible for.

For these purposes, 3 intellectual outputs will be developed in the project.

1) WISE Skills designated by the Mixed Method

2) Wise Mind Development of new holistic self-care system for youth workers – “Wise Mind”

3) Case-Study Analysis E-Platform For more information: https://wisemindproject.eu/

FAMILY CARE – Supporting the validation of competencies acquired by Family Caregivers in non-formal and informal learning through digital badges and micro-credentials

The FAMILY CARE project (2022-1-LT01-KA220-ADU-000087923) has been supported by European Commission within the Erasmus+ Cooperation partnerships in adult education under the coordination of “VsI Skudutiskio akademija” from Lithuania in collaboration with six partners from five different countries between 01.11.2022 and 31.10.2025.

FAMILY CARE aims to address the need calls made by the United Nations on their SDG 5.4 goal “Recognize and value unpaid care and domestic work through the provision of public services, infrastructure and social protection policies and the promotion of shared responsibility within the household and the family as nationally appropriate” as well as the EIGE need call on unpaid domestic care, especially in the cases of taking care of dependents, undermines the development possibilities of women. Therefore, FAMILY CARE will work hand in hand with adult teachers, counsellors, and guidance professionals to support the validation of competences acquired by Family Caregivers in non-formal and informal learning through digital badges and micro-credentials. Consequently, these professionals will be provided with materials to promote the re-entering of the family caregivers to the labour market by promoting the visibility and appeal of the competences acquired during the unpaid domestic work. Therefore, there will be a direct contribution to cut the employment gender gaps associated with caring for dependents.

The main project results are

-Development of the European Framework of Competences in digital validation of competences for Family Caregivers

– FAMILY CARE Virtual CAMPUS and Mobile Assessment App

– Piloting phases and production of Guidelines and Recommendations

– Sharing, promotion, exploitation and sustainability
