Project description:

The youth unemployment is a problem, which is highly relevant for most of the EU and Eastern partnership countries. There are multiple and complex causes behind youth unemployment. Among them, the quality and relevance of education, inflexible labour 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. Among consequences of youth unemployment is further urbanisation and labour migration, which lead to regions decline.

By conducting this project we would like to provide support for local NGOs to help their target groups – local young people – in self-realization and future development as active community members. Training course will be dedicated to the coaching of young people with fewer opportunities in their career building, especially on the online job market. The participants of the TC – youth workers who will be prepared to act as coaches in their communities and support young people in their career building. 

Aims and objectives:

  • to explore the causes and consequences of the youth unemployment in rural and deprived urban areas;
  • to train 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;
  • to support organisations working with young people with fewer opportunities (esp. those coming from rural and deprived urban areas) and provide them with the innovative tools aimed at youth development;
  • to promote international cooperation and capacity building in the field of youth work.

Target group: youth workers and youth leaders, trainers and educators working with young people
