“Boosting rural youth ICT and soft skills to increase integration and employability in the labour market” is a project funded by the British Embassy in Tirana, supported by UNDP Albania, under the call “Support to employment and social services for vulnerable youth and women in Northern Albania”, which seeks to strengthen the role of young men and women in the municipality of Diber.
The action aims to equip young people in the area with the necessary basic knowledge and skills needed to access the labour market and other development opportunities, and builds on four main components:
- Outreach and grass-root mobilisation
- Non-formal education (collaborative approach)
- Enhancing partnerships
- Participatory involvement
The activities envisaged in the project are expected to provide impact in regard to increased public outreach and mobilization, enhanced capacities of various local groups; mobilisation of local community by grass-root groups; increased awareness on the use of ICT and soft skills and necessary means to employment; new and strengthened partnerships and encouraged culture on new employment models and competencies.
