#PJstories – Interview with Aleksandra Kubica

Aleksandra Kubica participated in the Training Course “The NEET Challenge” organized by PROJUVEN in Torremolinos, Spain

Hello Aleksandra! Can you give us your opinion about the project “The NEET Challenge“?

The project “The NEET challenge” was a nice surprise for me. I didn’t expect that this topic can be introduced in such an interesting way. There were introduced some programs in which NEETs can take part in but I think that these programs can be used for all young people no matter if they are NEETs or not, so I’m definitely gonna to apply for one of them. The trainers were super nice and able to answer participants’ questions. The activities were interesting and they were improving competences such as public speaking, debates skills and so on. All the participants were integrated and we had amazing time together. I would certainly come back for another amazing project in sunny Terremolinos.

According to you, what support works best for young people at risk of becoming NEET?

First of all, the support of families and friends. The people from close environment should encourage NEETs to do something productive with their lifes. Secondly, some programs particularly aimed at these people such as internships, trainings, some classes which can help them to increase knowledge, gain some competences which might be useful on the market. Also some governmental programs helping to find employment for people in NEET could be a good solution.

What is the most important thing you have learned during the training? How do you plan to share and use your knowledge?

The most important thing I have learned is that NEETs are among us and we cannot neglect this problem. It is an issue which the whole society should tackle. We should help them to leave their current situation and become ambitious citizens. The way I will share my knowledge is advartising some programs we talked about and that can be useful for young people belonging to NEETs group. Even sending such links to someone or sharing it on Facebook or Instagram can be a big help for them.
