Project description

Children and young people from socially disadvantaged groups often have prospects limited to low-skilled work. Those are the project's target group, and project aims to support them through educational and career guidance activities. These activities help them to acquire modern skills, so they can aim for better employment positions. The main goal of the project is therefore to increase the social inclusion of marginalized Roma communities and to build the capacity of local community service providers through proven and best practices and programs in the field of education and employment. The project consists of modernizing and updating existing and proven methodologies and implementing ongoing career guidance, digital skills training, and support through volunteer mentor programs. The project is implemented mainly through a network of six registered community centres and one primary school.
