Project Description:

This project is a result of a SALTO training course realized in October 2014. During the SALTO training issues such as unemployment, and especially youth unemployment that are a major concern all over the EU also self-development of soft skills to present themselves during job interviews and developing abilities to raise their chances of employment. Universities and schools are not being updated about the market trends and as a result the employability of youth is decreasing, even though their education is increasing. Employers are asking for experience and most young people lack this, but also lack the understanding of the skills and experiences they actually have from their various life learning activities. Young people need to have more self-esteem to handle better situations that arise in the workplace.
This youth exchange will look at the concept of employability and look at the various tools available to help youth to increase their employability. This includes developing soft skills and self-presentation techniques to better their self-esteem and quality for chances of employment. We hope that with the various workshops and activities the youth will gain the knowledge and the tools for them to understand the markets better and to increase their employability. We will look at issues like education, EVS, EURES, Europass and other EU tools and discuss these in details, sharing experiences with each other and giving a better understanding of how these work.
Many young people have an attitude that there is no employment opportunities left and as a result they sit back waiting for an opportunity to come to them, and as a result we blame the system for this and in the long run the youth are getting depressed and giving up hope.
We hope to give the understanding that there are many employment opportunities out there and it is our responsibility to go out and find the jobs. It is our responsibility to find the various incentives and tools available to us, in order to increase our employability and to create the employment opportunities we need.
The project participants are young people that face these issues above, living in countries that have a very high youth unemployment rate and the idea of the project is to give the participants the tools and knowledge to develop each of these abilities and talents and share them in their communities to increase their employability, to make the correct educational choices based on the market needs and help young people prepare better for different employment opportunities.
We will exchange good and bad practices from each country and put all the good practices together for formulate workshops and activities so that each of the partner organisations and other organisations can help more young people in these important and desperately needed areas.

Food, Accomodation is covered 100%. Travel Costs up to budget according to Erasmus + programme.

Testimonials

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
