Become a force of positive change

In an era where technology's influence is ubiquitous, the imperative for responsible digital citizenship has never been more crucial. Recognizing this, SkillsUp, under the guidance of Friends of Children in Romania, has embarked on an ambitious project alongside partner organizations from Cyprus, Italy, and Portugal. This collaboration is a testament to the power of unity in pursuit of a noble cause: to mold the youth into conscientious digital citizens.

Innovation in action

A unique aspect of the project is its dedication to developing online social consciousness. By contextualizing the online activities of young people within a set of key values, it aims to cultivate a generation of responsible digital citizens. This forward-thinking approach not only addresses current digital challenges but also anticipates future ones, preparing the youth to navigate the digital world with integrity and awareness.
