Empowering Youth #2

  /  Empowering Youth #2

The problem

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.)

Our solution

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:

  • Orientation
  • Vocational training
  • Employability services

people trained in various professions

Odyssea helped me a lot to upgrade my cv, gain confidence, and in a very short time promoted my cv to a position that suited me very well and was exactly what I wanted. I owe a lot to the people of Odyssea and I hope they continue their unique work at the same pace.
