Anete  shares  exciting moments of her learning experience :  „

I participated in the “IT for my Future Career” project and learned this software: Microsoft Office 365, Data visualization with Infogr.am, Web page and banner creation. By participating in this project, I gained new insight and knowledge and reaffirmed that my ICT skills are at a good level. I already do and will continue to utilize what I’ve learned during the project, in my graduate studies, in the job market, and by sharing my experience with others by becoming a lecturer.

I think that the young people were satisfied with the seminars I led - this was confirmed by their interest in attending and participating in them.

 

Participation in the project supported by YouthSpark and LIKTA gave me the opportunity to share my knowledge and skills  with other youth, to gain confidence of what I’ve learned! „
