To help public employment bodies in Bosnia and Herzegovina to improve their offer and to introduce youth-friendly services, such as individual and group careers advice for unemployed young adults between 18 and 30 years; to provide better prospects for young unemployed people; to capitalise on existing potential for sustainable business models
Key Activities
The project promotes state-run advisory services by introducing new working methods and supporting young people in their search for employment. At the same time, it uses social entrepreneurship to motivate the unemployed and support them in becoming self-reliant and able to create jobs for themselves. In addition, a network of 25 'job clubs' has been created, which, together with the public careers advice services, give young people the opportunity to improve their professional skills.
Target groups
unemployed youth between 18 and 30 years; emphasizing the importance of young people from socially disadvantaged groups being given the opportunity to benefit from their services
By January 2017, 6,240 young unemployed adults had benefited from the support of the various job clubs. Since then, 2,665 of them have found employment. A further 7,511 new unemployed persons have received their first individual careers advice.
