BOEMI – Building Our Employment skills through Music Investigations and New Media

BOEMI Building Our Employment skills through Music Investigations and new media is an innovative capacity building project involving 5 involving 5 partners – Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo “Danilo Dolci” (CSC)(Italy), Crossing Borders (Denmark), IYEC (Ghana), Jeunesse En Action “GNO FAR” (Senegal), Asociación para la Integración y Progreso de las Culturas Pandora (Spain) – from 2 different continents (Europe and Africa) that envisages to use non formal education, Reciprocal Maieutic Approach and music as a tool for youth development, and more specifically to raise employability skills of over 270 youngsters.

The project aims at promoting transnational non-formal learning mobility activities between the different countries, targeting both young people with fewer opportunities and youth workers, so as to increase their competences and active participation in society. BOEMI aims particularly at growing youngsters’ self-esteem and feeling of belonging to society, increasing the confidence in their “unique selling points” and transforming their interest in music into employability skills. The project also intends to empower youth work organisations, developing new working methods, tools and materials based on non-formal education and experimenting music as an educational pedagogical tool.
