Skill building training
The Youth Cafe features a series of individual and group skills-building trainings, which aim to expand youth’s experience with 21st-century skills and approaches through intensive, hands-on sessions led by leaders and innovators in diverse fields.
Seminars are conducted online and on-site with the focus of enhancing youth’s technical skills, relevant no matter which professional track or technical sector they are in, and embrace a blended learning approach that combined substantive presentation and information sharing with participatory components. Facilitators share tools that participants can access anywhere, which they can bring back to their homes to share with colleagues and incorporate into their individual or institutional approaches where relevant.
The courses include data visualization, communication, design thinking, job search, adaptive project management, marketing, pitch deck, art of public speaking, understanding storytelling, critical thinking, personal value proposition, among others.
