What is it for you?
The WomenBridges is part of a bigger initiative named momgotajob , dedicated to fulfilling life for women and mothers in all their roles. WomenBridges provides a comprehensive approach and concrete methodology to support the career paths of young women, especially those in vulnerable situations to achieve economic independence and employment. At the same time, it develops the competencies of youth workers and NGO teams in implementing and co-developing this approach.
The long-term goal of WomenBridges is the effective inclusion of young women in public life by providing quality and balanced employment as entrepreneurs, self-employed or employees.
It is an opportunity to experience first hand the WomenBridges process and to equip yourself with the skills to guide and support other women.

In the scope of the current project you will participate in the co-creation of the pilot activities for young women and will be able to put into practice the competencies built through the training of trainers course. In the long term you will be able to continue working with the WomenBridges program, as we see it as a long term activity and a permanent activity of the partnering organizations.
The training team
The training team is of women who combine the roles of mother, business women, nonprofit practitioners and several others. All of them have personally experienced the WomenBridges path of growth and are ready to share and support the participants in their process of becoming buddies both through providing experience of self-observation and learning and building competencies to support and train others. Cumulatively the training team is competent in delivering training for youth workers within the Erasmus+ framework, entrepreneurship, project and people management, career development and guidance in various environments (corporate, nonprofit, freelancing, etc.), communication, diversity and inclusion, leadership, mentoring and others.
