In Spain we have divided the workshops of the local phase into two parts. We used the game developed by Pistes Solidaires, which was adapted for the C2 course in Rome, thanks to all the project partners, especially the Italian partner REPLAY, who facilitated the course and compiled the activities for the comp-pass workshops. In Lorca we have adapted the game to our local reality, in such a way that each day we carried out 6 activities in 1 hour and a half. The last two days the activities were linked to the e-portfolio competencies, so we did an activity first to introduce the general competence and then passed them a form with the skills included in the competence to point out those they thought they had, but needed to improve and also those they thought they had 100%. We noticed that it was difficult for them to think about the skills they had, but they needed to improve, and that they only put in the skills they did or did not have. The young people of Spain are not used to self-evaluation, so that is an element that we will have to work more with them in the future.
We've added some extra fun element: if the participants fell twice into the same box, they had to perform a challenge. This challenge could be individual or group. In this way we also contributed to the cohesion of the group and to a welcoming atmosphere.
Then we created a vlogging workshop for young people to learn how to tell stories, talk on camera, introduce themselves and create their own YouTube channel. In Spain, young people watch Youtube a lot and follow Youtubers as real stars, so they are very motivated to create their videos, but they don't know how to do it. Learning to do this has helped young people feel more confident and has also improved their entrepreneurship skills because they have been able to think about their own youtube channel, with their tastes and messages. We did this workshop in one day, during the morning and afternoon, so that the young people had time to create their videos.
In general, the workshops were very well received, the young people were more aware of their skills and dreams and supported each other.
