WORKING TOGETHER TO DEVELOP YOUTH EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS

The training activity took place
in Lebork, Poland
organised by EDUQ
25-29 October, 2010

Aims & objectives

We were organizing a training course for youth workers from all over Europe. The activity was about working out better quality of projects
in the future, discussing methods of work with youth with lower chances to develop their enterpreneurship and employability skills. We
looked for the best ways how to deal with unemployment, social exclusion or poverty and explore ways to use the Youth in Action
programme to raise young people's key competences and their access to
the labour market. The reason of the topic: Youth unemployment is higher than average employment. Young people with fewer opportunities often lack necessary competences and experiences in order to enter or stay in labour market. At the same time, non-formal learning (e.g. in the Youth In Action programme)
provides very valuable learning experiences for young people.
