Project Description:
The crisis in Europe has affected our youth in many different ways. Many young people are experiencing extreme difficulty finding employment and as the crisis is growing we see many young people affected in many different ways. Many young people are now leaving their home countries to go work in other EU countries, but we are now seeing that some of these larger countries are starting to close their doors. Our young people are gaining education but are lacking in a very much desired area, namely, experience and it is becoming more and more difficult to find opportunities to gain experience. We know that jobs are available as we search different databases but the problem is that most young people do not know about these, Is this a result of them not looking hard enough or because it is not easy to find them? The Erasmus+ program has given a lot of emphasis on youth unemployment, but is this enough? How can we as youth help ourselves to deal with the crisis and survive these difficult times? We hope to give our youth the needed tools to be able to deal with these problems and the ability to help them find jobs.
