Our country holds the highest youth unemployment rate in the EU. Even when one has a job, they often remain unable to provide the basics for themselves. In-work poverty in Greece is also one of the highest in Europe and is seriously affecting the physical and mental well-being of those who experience it. Young people with low levels of education, limited job experience, a lack of basic skills and access to training, are therefore trapped in unemployment.
(The situation is even more severe for refugees and migrants, especially those arriving from third-world countries, with poor educational backgrounds and technological literacy. Their road to integration is often blocked by a wall of discrimination and prejudice.)
Support young vulnerable people in the best way possible by implementing a holistic approach to assist equally both unemployed Greeks and guest communities integrate into society. The model is built upon 3 equally important main services:
- Vocational training
- Employability services
Each individual receives the combination of services that best respond to their needs and goals.
Soft Skills Development
Life skills training with an emphasis on personal development, emotional intelligence and active citizenship
Tailor-made vocational training programs focusing on professional skills related to the Tourism section
Preparation for the Labor Market
Career counseling and job search techniques, guidance on interview and hiring processes, ensuring appropriate preparation to seize opportunities and secure employment
Job Retention Support
Guidance and professional evolution assistance for a period of 12 months, ensuring the beneficiaries’ job retention and long-term success
