Despite bad weather in Karlstad, We had great project with all participants.Erasmus+ Youth Exchange “Let's Get Job'' brought 60 young people and group leaders from different organizations based in EU, and Turkey with the aim to tackle the issue of Youth Unemployment. Carlstad Youth Association was applicant and host organization. Youth Exchange took place in Karlstad, Sweden from 1st May to 8thth May 2015 and will last 8 days (including arrival and departure). Participants were from Programme countries; Sweden, Turkey and Lithuania). The main aim of the exchange was to tackle youth unemployment problem, inform, motivate and enable young people to work on the topic in their countries as well as equip them with experience, knowledge and skills to easily involve in labor market. The project targets young unemployed people who wanted to start working and find a job.
The main objectives of the exchange were:
- To reflect on unemployment situation of youth in Europe.
- To give an opportunity to young people to share their good and bad experiences in looking for a job,
- To promote youth's involvement in voluntary work,
- To encourage the creation of future projects within Erasmus+, which will target unemployed youngsters.
During 8 working days young people from different countries shared opinions and ideas on unemployment and were involved in various activities. They learned CV and Motivation Letter writing techniques, Hints to pass a Job Interview, Working with E-Job Databases, how to use Volunteerism as a way to the labor market, what is YouthPass, how to get a Europass Language Passport, how to work with career centers, etc.
Through creative games, exercise and non formal tools we stimulated young people's spirit of initiative, creativity, entrepreneurship and employability through practical and theoretical inputs from participants and group leaders from participant countries. After coming back home, participants were responsible to transfer their knowledge to young people involved in their organizations or young people from local schools/ universities.
Active participation, group-work and teamwork, as well as practical exercises characterized the youth exchange.
