About the project:

The labour market has become very competitive and we are seeing youth unemployment in many 
countries exceeding 40%. Employment doors are constantly closing for our youth. Our project 
will look at the labour market problems and help youth find ways to explore new avenues of 
employment and to know exactly where they should be looking for employment. We will explore 
a variety of competences and methods to increase these skills in order to increase the 
employability of youth.
The project is designed for youth from all four corners of Europe to allow for greater diversity in learning and sharing or best practices. The majority of the participants are disadvantages young people who are unemployed and desperately seeking methods to find employment in their countries or within Europe. The participants will exchange good and bad practices from their countries and we will explore all the opportunities available for youth in the EU and on national levels to help them maximise their skills and increase their employability.
