In Portugal, Associação Mais Cidadania has implemented the COMP-PASS project with 3 intensive workshops in November 2017, January/February and March 2018 in which 10 young NEETs participated (average age 23 years old). The general outcome is quite positive: the methodology is adaptable, works well and it enhanced participants’ self-knowledge, self-confidence, and willingness to get out of their comfort zone.
Participants were very involved in the digital storytelling process and brought a lot of creativity to their videos, feeling it was a powerful way to discover and highlight their strengths. Creating their own e-portfolio allowed youngsters to explore further their competences and experiences and the most effective ways to show them as assets.
Participants discovered they can inspire other people and keep building a progression path. The project allowed them to think of future projects and to structure their objectives.

“I feel that with this training I am on the right track now… it gave me the push I needed. I was looking for… almost expecting others to help me, but everything was inside me and I was able to discover that.” – Inês, 24 years old.
