!DROPS is developing the idea in Belgium since 3 years, it's called WeForWork:
We For Work aims to teach young people develop 21st century skills and work themselves to their future.
Through intervention we try to find your passion and what you really love. Everyone has his /her talent and that is useful in the creative lab: in small teams forge your plans for a project that you are in a design lab working. Are you a team crazy about your project? Then our coaches are ready to support you further.
--> SHOW YOUR TALENT TO THE OTHER MARKET
Based on your qualifications companies and organizations today evaluate whether you are suitable for the job and fit the company. You do not always get the opportunity to introduce yourself, giving your real talent may remain under the radar.
We turn the tables and put your talent central to our mobile market stall. We listen to your story, what you do really like and where you're just super good. We print your talent on a poster and let you show it off in our photo gallery. If you want, you can talk about your passion in a video or podcast. Or how about 10 seconds or Snapchat fame? Do not be shy and motivate other young people to show their talent.
--> FUTURE FROM DREAM TO IDEA OF THE FUTURE
During the Creative Lab everyone's talent is handy. Here you brainstorm in small teams on your future workplace, how and with whom you would love to work: you all work in a virtual reality or still socializing in the same space? And what tools or people are indispensable to you?
Each team consists of a mix of enthusiastic young people and experts in the field of design, development, research and strategy. Our experts share their knowledge and experience, thinking, and you are never too old to learn self young talent. Together you work on your own project idea that immediately is given a name and a logo.
--> CO-CREATION OF PROTOTYPE
Here you make the idea for an object, website, app, service ... into a prototype. Our experts assist you in implementing and defining the strategy so that you get a realistic picture of your concept.
Ready? Pitch your prototype in a short and clear video and tell the world how your idea adds to our future work. Which challenge did you see and how did you solve this? What makes your idea unique and what do you have to continue to work on? Be yourself, be passionated and be enthousiastic!
COACHING & FOLLOW-UP
--> SUPPORT TO COMPLETION
Do you want to acces the market with your prototype, or do you want to go to businesses?
If this is a YES, our coaches will advice you during three months in the areas of administration, organization, project management, communication and finance.
Become more confident and go to possible employers more enthousiastic. You and your talents have been a vital link in the realization of the prototype and that's something to be proud of. Our coaches help you to tell your story. Who knows employers call you and not vice versa.
