Expanding Opportunities for Youth Employment
The training course for youth workers has been developed to act as coaches in their communities and support young people in their career building.
The project is dedicated to the issue of the youth unemployment, which is highly relevant for most of the Programme and Eastern partnership countries.
There are multiple and complex causes behind youth unemployment. Among them, the quality and relevance of education, inflexible labor market and regulations, which in turn create a situation of assistance and dependency, are the main causes discussed today.
The situation is usually worse when we are talking about young people from non-capital, small cities, rural, distant areas or deprived urban areas and young migrants. Among consequences of youth unemployment is further urbanization and labor migration, which lead to regions decline. Another consequence is connected with the exclusion of migrants and leads to such negative effects as crime growth.
The Objectives of the program are to:
- explore the causes and consequences of youth unemployment in rural and deprived urban areas;
- train an international group of youth workers to become coaches for young people with fewer opportunities in their self-realization and future career, especially on the online job market;
- support organisations working with young people with fewer opportunities (esp. those coming from rural and deprived urban areas and migrants) and provide them with the innovative tools aimed at youth development;
- promote international cooperation and capacity building in the field of youth work.
Participants: youth workers, trainers, youth leaders, educators from partner organisations from Azerbaijan, Armenia, Cyprus, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Spain and Ukraine.
