We help young people successfully start their adult lives.
About Nadání a dovednosti
Nadání a dovednosti o.p.s. was established in 2012 with the aim of helping youth from children’s homes achieve independence and self-confidence as they become adults. Initially we focused exclusively on personal and career development and on helping teenagers learn useful skills for when they leave the children’s home. Being prepared for (and supported during) this phase of their lives is crucial. Since 2012 we have helped many children overcome their fear of starting out life on their own.
As the participants of our projects have grown, so has our organisation. Thanks to strong partnerships and our donors, we can still help young people from children’s homes and have expanded our focus to supporting youth from socially disadvantaged backgrounds. Currently, we are primarily supporting youth from children’s homes and socially disadvantaged backgrounds. However, the ROZHLED project is also open to other young people with whom we complement the group. That way, the project connects youth of all backgrounds, promotes diversity and social empathy.
The young people we work with show us the importance of what we do. This motivates us to keep on growing and expanding our activities further!
Our vision, mission and values are clear!
Our vision is to be a partner to young students from socially disadvantaged backgrounds and to support their personal and career development. We promote system changes to interconnect institutionalised education with work experience.
What is our mission? We support young people from children’s homes and socially disadvantaged backgrounds. They are encouraged to build their strengths through workshops, career consulting, mentoring or excursions to various companies. This helps them succeed in their careers and personal lives and to take matters into their own hands
On what values do we build everything we do in Nadání?
SUPPORT we support and respect
COMMUNITY we are creating a community, which is helping, interconnecting and offering opportunities
DEVELOPMENT we constantly grow and develop
TRANSPARENCY we are transparent and responsible
PURPOSE what we do makes sense to us
