The Association CTS from Lecce is glad to inform you, that the Italian National Agency approved a Youth Exchange called Job Creation.

The Youth Exchange will take place in Lecce, a baroque city in the south of the Apulia Region. The theme of the project is the presentation of opportunities that young people have while they’re building their career, helped by the opportunities offered by EU or their respective national governments, or thanks to the personal effort (education, preparation and ingenuity) and the experience developed with unpaid employment – Volunteering. This result is for combating youth unemployment.

The main objective is to increase the awareness of young people in their personal life skills and to give them the instrument to purpose them-selves in future prospective of work.

We will discuss 4 issues regarding how to prevent unemployment:

1. Unemployment – workshop about how the unemployment is dealt with in all the participating countries;

2. Preparation: – how to choose and look for a job or a scholarship, how to apply for a job or a school, master, etc. (CV, letter of intention, but in a non-formal and creative way).

3. Ingenuity – how to make a business plan especially with reference to the opportunities offered by Youth in Action program.

4. NGO and Volunteering – advantages and disadvantages of volunteering; How to form an NGO and how to apply for Youth in Action programs.

All the workshops will be realized in a creative way, focusing on teamwork, creativity and communication.
