Who can benefit from the program?

The program provides support for the following groups

Youth

 Young people studying in vocational education often do not have the appropriate conditions, knowledge and motivation to successfully complete their studies. The project offers mentoring, skills development trainings, inclusion in supporting teams, professional and social support to exploit their internal resources and develop their skills, gain practical tools that help them successfully complete their studies and to formulate their educational and labour market goals.

 Young people who have dropped out of education, early school leavers: are encouraged by mentoring, career guidance, training and team support to be able to return to their studies and acquire a profession, which really matches their employment goals, in fields offering high-quality job opportunities.

 Young people with a vocational or grammar school qualification, who also live in difficult conditions and have so far failed to find a job that corresponds to their qualifications. They are supported by career guidance, labour market and other placement trainings, in order to be able to consciously and successfully search and find work in an area of their interest and skills.
