Project Description:
Most young people have a blue print of life hammered into them from a very young age. We go to school, we try to get into the best school, working hard to get into the best universities or colleges and then we have the prestige of a degree and we can find a job. If only it was this simple though. With so many young people competing for the same jobs, a university degree is simply not enough anymore.

We have identified that with the pressures of schools and universities, young people are no longer trying to discover and develop their natural talents. They don’t explore their given talents and try to fit within the norms of modern education. Studies have shown that some people are better equipped, mentally and physically, for certain jobs, so should this not be the focus of their education and training?

This youth exchange will address the subject of youth unemployment from the viewpoint that we need to understand our natural skills and develop these so that we can overcome unemployment by being the best version of ourselves that we can be. We will explore the hidden talents that we have and see how these can be used to make us more employable and also to help us find the best jobs based on these talents. We will look at our options when it comes to education, and if we already have an education, see how we can combine our education and our talents to explore our options of the labour market, its needs and how our talents, skills and education can meet these needs.

In addition to the above we will also explore the labour markets of our countries and those of the EU, to understand what they need and how we can fit into these needs so that we can increase our chances of employment by meeting the needs of the labour markets.

This youth exchange will address the challenges of young unemployment in the partner countries with an emphasis of creating better understanding of our hidden talents and understanding the needs of the labour markets and creating a bridge between the two in order to turn young people into skills and employable youth.

Testimonials

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
