Upskilling digital competences and career management skills of disadvantaged youth in Georgia, Armenia and Moldova

Project Description
The project bings together partners from Georgia, Armenia, Moldova, and the Czech Republic to exchange practices. It develops opportunities for employability and personal development of disadvantaged youth through awareness raising, training, integrating digital career counseling into existing supported employment programs and stimulating digital entrepreneurship.

The project will be implemented in Georgia (Adjara, Imereti, Samegrelo and Zemo Svaneti regions), Armenia (Shirak, Lori and Tavush regions), and Moldova (Chisinau, Cahul and Ungheni reg regions). It reaches out to young people, in particular to those with fewer education and employment opportunities. It engages them in the activities that will foster their participation in the labour markets and democratic life. Thanks to that, formal and non-formal structures and initiatives for career and digital skills development will be strengthened to provide quality and relevant services to disadvantaged youth. In addition, active participation of youth, including disadvantaged youth, in democratic and socio-economic life will increase.
