An Innovative Programme in the Digital Era


Futuro Digitale Association works to promote youth empowerment through concrete possibilities of development connected to e-learning, traineeship and personalised patterns of working periods. It has three main objectives: – empower youth; – educate to European citizenship; -promote intercultural dialogue within Europe and among Mediterranean countries.For instance, together with the Department of Business and Law of Cosenza University, the Association has structured a formative liaison which allows students to work and learn at the same moment in order to be introduced to the job market. What is more, Futuro Digitale officially obtained the role as job agency by the Ministry of Labour – this is implemented through non-formal education strategies which enable youth to further reflect on employability skills and entrepreneurship. Futuro Digitale hosts volunteers and trainees within the Erasmus for young Entrepreneurs programme, Erasmus traineeship and he has recently received the accreditation as sending and coordinating organization for the EVS (European Voluntary Service).
Furthermore, Futuro Digitale supports youth in obtaining micro-credit loans through specific tutoring aimed at supporting all the bureaucratic passages. The tutoring is based on on-going support and relation with the micro-credit applicant.
Another important field of action is the promotion of the EU Citizenship and solidarity among youngsters and Istitutions. The Association supports local authorities, public and private non-profit/for profit organisations and citizens, with particular reference to young people and disadvantaged groups, in accessing European funds and other opportunities offered by the European Union. About 200 youngsters in 2 years have done European mobility experiences with the Association. Futuro Digitale fosters the dissemination of information about the initiatives and opportunities promoted by the European Union in different fields, through both internet and social networks, and organising public events to involve local youth for the acquisition of specific types of knowledge.
