Erasmus + Model of Youth Development for Employment



  • Foster cooperation and exchanges in the field of youth work with an emphasis on increasing the youth employment between Programme Countries (Poland, Romania) and Partner Country from the Balkan region (Serbia). Thanks to the creation and improvement of the partnership among organisations active in youth work, the project will empower young people to become more active on the labor market.
  • Improve the quality of youth work and non-formal learning in all countries taking part in the project, especially in Serbia thanks to the education of youth workers.
  • Promote transnational non-formal learning mobility between Programme and Partner Countries, especially targeting young people with fewer opportunities, with a view to improving participants’ level of competences and fostering their active participation in society thanks to the creation of cooperation between Kolping youth organizations based on mobility activities.
  • Empower youth organizations to contribute to the increase in youth employment, thanks to the realization of capacity building project and to cooperate, create a network and develop peer-learning activities fostering efficient management and gaining new ideas, methods and tools.
