Yes, they can
For the training and mentoring programme for young people, we base our work on the SALT method, developed by the Constellation NGO. Basic principle: each community has its own capabilities that it sometimes doesn't recognise. It is therefore necessary to help them discover such skills and stimulate them to face the challenges that arise.
The SALT method is comprised of four foundations:
- Support through actively listening and asking questions.
- Accompanying the young people in formulating their dreams and evaluating their skills/talents in relation to the fulfilment of those goals.
- Linking local solutions to national and international solutions where possible (implementing partnerships and the exchange of good practices).
- Transferring best practices to other groups (inspiring others).
In this way, we hope to cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit among young people and inspire them to achieve projects the entire community can enjoy.
