This is a training initiative aimed at 18- to 23-year-old, looking outside formal education a way to develop their potential as entrepreneurs in three possible areas: energy, technology and sustainability. The project is a laboratory for training and work, with the aim of developing a prototype that can last over time.
This project will have three components, highly beneficial for participants:
1. Content development and facilities, we beleive in a different educational system, where people enjoy and get their best. We'll try to find the optimal way of learning, testing contents and tools.
2. Training the participants in some skills we think are important to be a self-reliance person.
3. Develope personal projects. Using the synergies of the group, mentors and other volunteers involved in the program, the participants can plan a business, improve some skill, learn new topics or whatever they imagine.
We also will be pleased of teaching Spanish, share our memories or invent new games :-)
We are looking for participants ready for learning and sharing knowledge.
The project has two parts learning and help to create the learning spaces: First is to test a training model as participants, which will develop skills on entrepreneurship, permaculture, technology and innovation. Our methodology is based in the high value every participant can give to the group, the contents of the "course" are made gathering the knowledge of everyone. The participants are going to create contents by debating ideas, search information to share to the group, develope projects for themselves, evaluate processes to find the best ways...
We are looking for the cultural exchange that an international group of motivated people can create. This is a free learning activity for everyone and the work needed is just for improving the training areas and facilities for the next participants and to grow food in a small garden for feeding people involved in the project (participants and voluntary coaches), so you must be ready to work as a painter, adobe maker, carpenter, farmer, cook, ...
We are looking for people interested in a long stay (from 2 months min, to 10 months max), but we also are glad of having you here to test the idea for a couple of weeks.
