yeu-logo-Youth-for-Exchange-and-UnderstandingYouth for Exchange and Understanding (YEU) is an international Non-Governmental Youth Organization (INGYO) established in 1986 and member of the European Youth Forum in Brussels as an INGYO. YEU looks forward to increase tolerance and awareness between different countries, cultures and traditions, and to promote a greater level of comprehension through the development of various youth activities. 

The Training Course “Youth work empowers youth to work” aims at enhancing youth workers’ skills in empowering young people to overcome unemployment.

The TC will equip youth workers with tools that allow young people to identify their talents, their skills, their interests and passions in order to get employed (or self-employed). By the end of the training, participants are expected to have their own strategic plan on how to empower young people to overcome unemployment by finding and following their element. Going further, if the strategic plans of the youth workers are 100% successful, then hundreds of unemployed young people will be empowered to identify their interest, their skills, their dreams and overcome unemployment, gain back their autonomy and their strength.

The Training Course will take place from 13-21 November 2015 in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
