WHAT IS ADULT LIFE?
The project AdultLife is a strategic partnership that aims to support young people in transition to adulthood by making information about the process available in an understandable, relatable and youthful way. It has information on the following topics: Employability, Housing, Financial Literacy, Well being and Citizenship & Participation.
Young adults have to face a multitude of decisions during their transition, and, oftentimes, finding trustworthy verified information that helps them navigate a very bureaucratic world is scarce. This leads to uninformed and unprepared people that aren’t fully aware of what their rights are, how to make responsible decisions and how to participate in society in all its dimensions. Also, when it comes to youth issues, the areas where our research focuses on are usually separated from each other, but in reality they are linked to one another.
AdultLife comes to improve this context by centralizing information on the 5 topics and broadcasting it into diverse forms: websites, podcasts, videos, a diary, a toolkit and MOOC for educators, events, and social media campaigns.
These outputs were carefully laid out to include young adults in different stages of their life, that’s why a second target group is included: youth workers, teachers, school psychologists, social workers, etc. This second target group will disseminate AdulLife’s information by transforming it into skills and attitudes that young people need for this phase, with the help of the toolkit and the MOOC.
Through the resulting outputs adapted for different audiences – youth and educational providers we aim to increase their awareness, knowledge and skills as direct participants in the process. The project creates innovative and attractive information channels which in the long term will adjust the educational balance towards these topics.
The project is supported by the European Union, the Erasmus+ program and Iuventa – Slovak Youth Institute.
The survival planner is a personal organizer, designed to be portable, you can take it everywhere you go! It contains calendar, templates, useful contacts, important national dates regarding the adult life (for example taxes) holidays, budgets, health appointments, etc. You only need to take a pen into your hand and your adultlife full of appointments can start!
