Venue: Trabzon  is located in the Black Sea  region.  The Blacksea  region is considered an agricultural, logistical and touristic center. The total population of the region is of 4 million people and the youth unemployment rate is around 20%.  On top of youth unemployment, the region also faces some other problems, like the absence of social entrepreneurship, women’s underrepresentation, migration and brain drain. On the other hand, there’s a high potential of young people,  there is also a high percentage of well-educated students due to the presence of 6 universities in the region, a good connection within the region and four-seasons’ weather. In the region there are development agencies and supporting institutions. Their priority is to support initiatives and projects aiming at youth and women’s entrepreneurship in the region.

The training course is part of the Youth@Work Partnership, which is an institutional alliance of 16 Erasmus+ National Agencies and SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres. 

In 2018, a consortium of 11 Erasmus+ Youth in Action National Agencies (NAs), 4 SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres and the Resource Center for the European Solidarity Corps decided to take a new approach to support employability and entrepreneurship amongst young people and professionals. They, therefore, created  the Youth@Work Partnership on Youth Employability and Entrepreneurship, with the aim to better address these areas by working collaboratively, based on a common strategy. Youth@Work is an alliance of the NAs of Turkey (the leading NA), Cyprus, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Poland, Republic of North Macedonia and Spain, with the support of the SALTO-YOUTH Eastern Europe and Caucasus (Poland), SALTO-YOUTH Euromed and Good Practices (France), SALTO-YOUTH South East Europe (Slovenia) and SALTO-YOUTH Training and Cooperation (Germany) Resource Centres, as well as the Resource Centre for the European Solidarity Corps (Austria). You can learn more about Youth@Work at www.youthatworkpartnership.org and on our social media channels.
