MAKE IT HAPPEN

Youth unemployment in the EU has increased drastically over the last few years and the opportunities for young people to find employment are becoming lesser by the day. We can see that many companies are seeking employees but the advantage is now in the hands of the employer creating the need for employees to be more competitive in order to find employment.
This training course will look at ways of helping young people to become more innovative in their approach to employment and to maximise their talents and skills to be more attractive to the employers. The training course is designed for people working in the field of youth and with youth to give them the needed tools to help young people in their communities to increase their employability. The training course will help youth workers develop workshops and activities in their communities to help more young people.
The main issues addressed in this training course are youth unemployment and the labour market. We will cover topics like cross boarder employment, labour market trends, needs of the markets, skills of young people and the trends that young people follow. Looking at these needs we will understand the different markets and develop the tools needed to help young people increase their chances of employment.
The outcomes of the training course allowed youth workers and trainers to help young people develop their entrepreneurial skills with emphasis on understanding labour markets and issues of cross border employment so that they can overcome the obstacles faced in the labour market today.
The project helped develop a series of workshops and activities that could be implemented by the partner organisations to help young people understand labour market, needs, trends and demands, they also included a workshop on understanding the cost of living in another country in order to help youth understand the important elements of living in another country, especially cost of living, so that they could make more informed choices regarding working in another country.
Additionally we explored and discovered many EU tools that could be used by youth either for skill development or to find employment, these included EURES, EVS, Erasmus+ programs like Training courses, Job Shadowing, Erasmus for young Entrepreneurs. Surprisingly many youth workers were not aware of most of these tools but they now gained the knowledge of these so that they could help young people in their communities take advantage of these.
