Universitarios rumbo al 2030 con LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® - 2030 Gen-Z vision building with LEGO SERIOUS PLAY
Young people in secondary education or in technical and vocational schools encounter problems in discovering, defining, and deciding how to integrate into the world of work and contribute to the economic development of the community of which they are a part, whether as employees, independent professionals or entrepreneurs. Studies in recent years show that 30% of graduates worldwide do not find work in the discipline they studied. The International Labor Organization (ILO) reports that 30% of the positions advertised by companies do not find qualified personnel with the required skills.
In many cases, the solution is to start an independent professional activity or open their own business. These young entrepreneurs do not have the help to evaluate ideas, solutions, support for decision making, or strategic thinking. Most students in Latin America cannot afford to participate in workshops on professional development strategy, solution design, and services. That leads them to wrong decisions and mistakes in business modeling, product positioning, market selection, or simply not understanding customer needs. 50% of these new companies do not survive the first three years.
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is perhaps the best method to facilitate personal, professional, and business strategy, but its price is inaccessible to Latin American students.
Execute an accelerated action to amplify the social impact of coordinating voluntary non-profit workshops for high school students.
1. Facilitate students their transition from school life to the world of work and entrepreneurship.
2. To introduce and show LSP power to the student as a method for goal setting, problem-solving, solution design, project planning, and personal or business development.
3. To help recently trained facilitators with a platform where they can start practicing the method contributing to the social and economic development of their communities.
4. To help Latin American communities through non-profit workshops for students that will be part of the labor and business market.
KEY ACTIONS OF THIS PROPOSAL:
1. Gloria de León prepares and executes a series of Training of Facilitators in LEGO SERIOUS PLAY Method.
2. Each facilitator commits to execute five Pro Bono remote workshops with groups of high school students.
3. Before and after the workshops, students and facilitators share the activities on social media using official hashtags. This amplifies the visibility of the SDG Action
4. After each workshop, each Facilitator fills an ODS report.
5. Universidad Tecnologica del Poniente captures participants' experiences, reports results to the United Nations, issues official recognition.
6. Workshops Would Impact in the development for a second language in the region of Yucatan, Merida, Mexico.
IMPACT 2021 in numbers: 8 certifications. 64 facilitators. Each facilitator impacts 60 people. Vulnerable population benefited: 3,840 higher education students. Panamá, Dominican Republic, Chile, and Mexico with special focus in Yucatán.
IMPACT 2022 in numbers: 16 Trainings. 128 facilitators + 50 experienced facilitators. Each will impact 60 people. Vulnerable population benefited: 4,000 higher education students. Guatemala, Panamá, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, and Mexico
Universidad Tecnologica del Poniente will be in charge of analyze and process all the collected data of the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY Volunteers Facilitators.
The quality of the data itself is a way to govern and verify the development of this initiative.
Also University will be contacting the Universities leaders, to check if how was the Volunteers development.
Our mechanisms to govern are:
1. Quality of data
2. Surve of the Universities attended
