About GYCA's Project Management E-Course:
This four-week e-course is a peer-to-peer training to educate young people
how to apply the SMART method to plan a project, set objectives,
implement it, monitor progress and evaluate the outcome. The e-course will
give young people a chance to acquire adequate skills, and provide them
with tools to write and effectively manage projects.
The e-course will take four weeks and require at least 4-6 hours of work
per week. Participants are expected to be dedicated and committed to the
course. At the end of the course, each participant will have a final
project plan pertaining to a HIV/AIDS issue. The methodology taught during
the workshop is applicable to any other project. Participants will be
encouraged to share their experiences about previous knowledge and skills
in this area.
Criteria for a certificate of course completion is as follows:
-Submit answers to weekly questions by the end of each week in order to
complete your Final Project Management
-Meaningfully contribute to the discussion board at least once for each
discussion topic (there will be three topics assigned per week);
-Final Project Management Plan should be completed and satisfactory (all
questions answered fully and coherently).
It is crucial that if you are considering applying, you must be devoted to
follow up post-course on a monthly basis. It is important that you stay in
contact with your facilitators about the progress of implementing the
information you learned.
