The idea is to use a variety of different methods of thinking out of the box for their self-improvement, personal development, coaching, time-management, psychology, against social and cultural discrimination and a lot of other themes which are becoming part of our personality. The aim is to spread these methods through the NGOs and help young people become more balanced and happy in their daily lives as well as increasing their employability rates.

Below are the main aims of the Training that we are organising which will have an impact on youth workers and will be transferred in their organisations and young people through future projects. Through this training we aim to emphasize on the following subjects:
• To evaluate the ways by which we understand ourselves.
o How do we understand ourselves?
o How do we do our self-analysis?
o Which are our strengths and weaknesses?
o What makes us motivated?
o Which criteria determine the ways we do our self-evaluation?
• Is our self-evaluation objective?
o How do other people evaluate us?
o Which do they believe are our strengths and weaknesses?
o Intersection of different views.
o How do we review our self-evaluation?
• To do freed-from-pressures, fear, discrimination or other “altered” factors self-evaluation.
o Deterioration of our self-understanding and self-evaluation at risk of being subject to discrimination.
o Are we subject to any discrimination and we cannot do objective self-evaluation, because we feel pressure by others or fear or we are deprived of our human rights?
o To learn the importance of awareness of our human rights (and responsibilities).
o To be aware of the human rights.
o To comply with human rights.
o To be freely expressed about ourselves.
o How do we review our self-evaluation? Are we now too lenient or too strict with ourselves?

o To express freely new ideas for self-improvement.
o To develop imagination and creativity to envision the future.
o To think how social media can contribute to self-improvement.
