Project summary:

The Posavje (Lower Sava) region is experiencing a high level of labour migration and emigration of young people due to employment reasons (young people do not return to the region after completing education), mismatch between structural supply and demand for jobs, and lack of information about region’s workforce needs and about opportunities to connect with region’s employers. The project tackles the identified challenges through overall improvement of support environment to support gaining of skills and competences and provision of information about job opportunities and the labour market. The project takes an innovative approach to promoting employment of young people in the less developed region of Posavje (Lower Sava) and gaining of competences for a better employability. It involves creation of a region’s dynamic and digitally supported support environment that brings together young people, employers as well as local youth and educational organizations. The goal of the project is to establish support environment to increase the employment potential of young people in the Posavje (Lower Sava) region by establishing digital communication channels, training counselors to work with young people, carrying out activities for young people and establishing a network of support organizations. An important part of achieving the long-term goals of the project is comprehensive training of youth counselors to work with young people in this field.
