Youth unemployment is still a hot problematic European topic. On the other hand we have and especially young people have to face job and training markets that are more and more confusing referring to job offers and opportunities and also to required skills and competences that young people have to bring with them.

Life makes demands and offers a lot of opportunities at the same time. So, youngsters feel overstrained and it becomes difficult for them to orientate themselves, find the right place and develop their own identity and personality. That makes it also difficult for them to generate an idea of their future life and in particular their professional life.

However there are people who are working with youngsters all over Europe and support and attend to young people by orientating and planning their professional way and life. They are social workers, educators, pedagogues, vocational counsellors, helpers for youngsters with special needs or heritage, volunteers of institutions and associations that work with youngsters etc.

With their support we will initiate a reformation of the pedagogical work in the field of youth and promote regional cooperation of partners from different kinds and institutions of youth work for a better occupational orientation of young people.
