Mentoring for employability

‘Mentoring for Employability’ is a 9-day Training Course aimed at increasing young people’s participation in the labour market by improving youth workers and youth organizations’ capacities in mentoring young people for employability.
The objectives of the activity are:
  • To deepen youth workers’ understanding on the importance of mentoring for employability,

The objectives will be addressed by gathering 29 participants from 10 partner organizations to work across nationalities and cultures, enhancing creative competence and innovation by broadening their idea process and knowledge within the field of youth work.
