The "Future in our hands"" project was created based on needs of young people from disadvantageous regions of the Czech republic, Turkey, Estonia, Italy and Slovakia to develop their skills, knowledge and competences regarding labour market. Euroteam turned to the partners from previous "contact making event" called "Moving on", then via social networks and emails to other potential partners. We created a "Call for partners", which was answered by almost 100 organizations. After reading the answers, descriptions of teams and their reasons and needs to participate we made a final decision and chose the partners of the project. The aims of the "Future in our hands" project follow the aims of the Erasmus+ project regarding the fight with increasing unemployment rate of young people.. The project aims to supply the participants with skills that are needed at the labour market and which are often essential in competitive environment. The project supports coordination and mutual enrichment in the field of non-formal education. In compliance with the Erasmus+ programme, the project aloows the participating teams to inform about gained results and outputs and share them and thus increase the impact of the project and its sustainability and ensure the European contribution of the Erasmus+ programme. The aim of the project is to improve the level of key competences of young people, including people with limite opportunities and support their involvement into democratic life in Europe and labour market, support their active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, social involvement and solidarity. The project intends to develop the following competences: communicative and language competences, entrepreneuship, social competences, creativity, ability to cooperate with partners on a specific topic, exchange experience regarding business, unemployment and problems of the labour market in the partner countries. We are going to develop these competences through nonformal activities - workshops, discussions, presentations, excursions, role-play activities etc. The participants will exchange information about unemployment rate in Czech Republic, Turkey, Italy, Estonia and Slovakia, learn to work out their CV for their future empoyer, try various forms of job interviews, exchange their opinion as for dress codes and behaviour and relationships in firms, but also opinions regarding running an own business.
