A mobility of youth workers "Creating your own working future" was approved

Erasmus+: KA1 mobility of youth workers "Creating your own working future" has been approved by the Czech National Agency. The training course prepared by EYCB in cooperation with Belgian NGO Connected Elephant will take place in Lednice between October 20th and 27th. Twenty four youh workers from Armenia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy, Moldova, Slovakia and Turkey will take part in it. The main aim of the TC is to improve work of youth workers so that they are able to effectively help young people in getting a job appropriate with their wishes and abilities. Please read more about the project here.


We have started cooperation with Břeclav Labour Office

As non-formal education Erasmus+ projects are a great opportunity to develop competencies, gain unique experiences and thus gain an advantage over other candidates in the labour market, we decided to promote this possibility also to young people who are currently unemployed.

Therefore, since June 2016 we have been, time to time, informing about abroad projects that are recently available, also at a dashboard of the Czech Labour Office, department Břeclav.

Hereby we would like to thank the Czech Labour Office, department Břeclav for a possibility to promote the Erasmus+: Youth projects at their premises.
