In order to prepare the next generation to be fit for the future it is necessary to fundamentally rethink learning. The so-called “Generation Global” is faced with the challenge of questioning the inheritance received from their forefathers and to bring the two extremes of poverty and wealth to a common denominator.
The human capacity to learn and to make sense of one’s own environment is an indispensable tool. This capacity is the aim of education, which in turn reflects the relationships with one’s self, with others and with the world at large.
Globalization in particular demands entirely new competencies from this generation. They are part of a networked global society and their task is to comprehend the various relationships within this society.
Societies are undergoing radical change at all levels. The era of pure capitalistic thinking and doing is coming to an end. And there are already plenty of examples of successful enterprises that define new values.
YouCan Trust offers education to adolescents via projects. We are convinced that only projects can create the relevant experience. This practical experience gained by participating in a project develops the strengthening of self-confidence and the understanding of global relationships.
YouCan Trust stands for international youth work and equalization of opportunities in the context of global cultural understanding. We see ourselves as partners with schools, as a catalyst for new business models (E-U21 Club – Entrepreneurs under 21), and as a mentor in youth exchange (Travel & Help).
