Project background: “Learning2DO: skills & competences for youth employability” is a Training Course directed to youth workers and youth leaders from Programme Countries, in order to empower the work of their NGOs in the field of youth employability.
Often, for youngsters, to orientate in today’s European labor market, affected by a deep economic crisis, and with an increasing competition within it, has become extremely complicated. Following the Europe 2020 Strategy, we aim to support youth organizations in developing an inclusive growth approach in their local communities, equipping their youth workers with valuable tools to empower youth employability, developing their coaching, career guidance and motivation skills, to support young people in their realities to be active in their labor market and in the European one. Moreover, we’ll provide them space to network, share best practices, define obstacles and challenges in different contexts, and work together on practical solutions to be implemented in each of their local contexts.
