Capacity Building Relay Race (Ca.Bu.Re.Ra.)
Start date: Dec 31, 2013, End date: Dec 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project in brief Young people are driving forces for the social, cultural and economic development of the Euro- Mediterranean area. Nevertheless, the current situation in terms of unemployment coupled with skills mismatch, lack of work experience and barriers to mobility are often described as the main obstacles hampering the integration of young people into the labour market. Not only can work experience help young people to develop professional skills, but also boost their soft skills (i.e. team work, communication and social competences, adaptability, critical thinking) thus contributing to mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue between people. CaBuReRa aims to reduce youth unemployment in the Mediterranean area through the promotion of mobility and vocational education of young people, building their capacities in the sector of project management. The project will provide 90 young people with the opportunity to live a 4-month period in a foreign country during which they will acquire both professional skills and intercultural competences. CaBuReRa has the ambition to become a pilot project for the development of new strategies addressing the issue of youth transition from education to work in the Mediterranean area. Specific objectives • To contribute to reduce unemployment in the Mediterranean through the mobility, professional development and vocational education of young people • To support the co-development of civil society organizations and local authorities • To promote active citizenship and intercultural dialogue through the exchange of good practices to reduce youth unemployment Expected Results: • 90 young people (30 young workers and 60 young unemployed from 5 countries) trainedon project management through a 4-month mobility period abroad and an extra 2-month internship for the 60 unemployed people • Level of knowledge, competences and skills about Euro-Mediterranean cooperation, project management, English and another foreign language raised for 90 young people • Competences acquired by young people validated by a certificate issued by the Region of Sicily • A dedicated Mediterranean network on mobility and vocational education developed involving at least 13 local organisations • Active citizenship of the people reached by the project enhanced • Mediterranean approach aiming to facilitate the transition from education to work strengthened
