Youth Employment Rights
Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Youth exchange “Youth Employment Rights” will take place in Denia, Valencia, Spain from 20-28.02.2017 will gather 35 young people from Spain, Italy, Turkey, Czech Republic, Serbia and Ukraine.Often it happens the management in companies to prefer to promote inside employees for new open position instead of hiring new employee. When the companies decided to take a new youth employee often happens the rights of the youth employee to be violated without even the young person to know that. That led to breaking the connection in the thrust between the companies and youth employees. After the violation of the youth employee’s right the person is demotivate and untruthful to their next employer that can resolve in unstable communication connection between the two sides. Many young people don’t know their labour and social rights when they apply for first job, quit job or got fired. Big percent are afraid of the future or even give up to continue study because they thought that a good job is “a now” job and after their first experience with the corporate world they are more confused and losing interesting in developing their own skills further.We found program Youth Guarantee that is developing in Spain, Commission in country report for 2015 stressed:"Despite a strong decline in 2015, the unemployment rate remains among the highest in the EU, especially among youth”. This statement lead us to Eurostat website ( where we found statistic for “Youth neither in employment nor in education and training (NEET) rate, age group 15-24” where Spain took one of the leading position with 22.4% in 2014. We agreed, that our target group would be young people from this categoryObjectives of the youth exchange:1. Increase knowledge and understanding about International Labour Standards on employment promotion, discrimination while applying to an open position or during the work. Labour, health and social rights among young people and how to react in case of abusing their rights2. Support young people in personal development by acquisition of necessary competences (writing motivation letter, preparing CV, searching and applying for job, etc) needed to make smooth gradual transition to labour market, education or training 3. Raise awareness among young people about variety of opportunities for study, training and employment (support programmes, EVS, Erasmus for young entrepreneurs, etc)4. Enhance employability and improve career prospects of young people from the minority groups that are in highest risk of unemployment, not in training like romas and refugees. As well, as people coming from problematic families or foster homes5. Promote Erasmus+ programme and non-formal educationBased on problems that we identified and experience of our partners, we create activities, which will help us to reach our objectives. Methodology to carry out the project would be mostly consisting of the non-formal methods- games, teambuildings, visual methods, competitions, role-plays, group work, peer-to-peer learning, discussion, presentations etc.The first level of observable impact will obviously be on the 35 participants. The activities designed for this project meant to leave a significant mark on the participants’ lives. Developing of participants will start even before actual activities and will continue after; we expect that our project will create momentum for them, so they will continue developing themselves all their life. They will become an example, role models for hundreds or thousands other young people who don’t know about their labour rights, who don’t know what they want to do in their lives, don’t know how to apply to jobs, how to prepare interview etc. Thus, level of unemployment among NEET will slightly start to fall down.
