NEKSTEP A step forward for youth in less dynamic environments
NEKSTEP – A step forward for youth in less dynamic environments
The project NEKSTEP is intended for young people between the ages of 14 and 29, who are transitioning from education to employment, and for the counselors who work with them.
About the project
The project aims to facilitate the transition between education and employment for young people in our region, regardless of the level at which they complete their formal education. We want to make this transition easier for them and equip young people with the knowledge and skills needed to carry this transition out independently and sovereignly. We want to connect youth with the local environment and stakeholders in it – not only with employers but also with institutions that can help them.
Who can be involved in the project activities?
- young people between the ages of 14 and 29
- counselors, mentors working with young people
- companies or individuals who want to present their profession to young people
- organisations that help young people on their career or enterpreneuiral path.
