About the project

The project is designed for youth workers and members of NGOs working with young people on topics of entrepreneurship and employability. As from our and our partners’ experience career of youth worker is usually build “naturally and by evolution from volunteer to project coordinator and manager”, the project is designed as a bridge between need of assistance provided by youth workers in topics related to employability, providing them with complex knowledge and experience of the process of getting a job.

Participants in the project will come through complete employability path simulated with non-formal education methods, from assessment of skills, through finding a suitable job offer, creating profiles in professional social media (LinkedIn) and creating professional CV and covering letter, to job interview and negotiating contract and working conditions. At all stages we will learn methods of non-formal education, which can be then used in partners’ local communities to support young people in the process of starting their careers. We will also learn about main EU initiatives and programmes stimulating employability of young people – Youth Guarantee and EURES.

Trainers of the project will be experienced in employability process on various scale, from small family companies to large international corporations, as well as experienced youth workers and trainers with considerable experience in non-formal education, which guarantees practical aspect of the training.
