Project Summary

The CHARGER project was a global capacity building initiative engaging 6 youth organizations from Europe and Asia with the main aim to create the partnerships response for the urging global problem of youth unemployment, and create the supporting systems by working with the employability competences.The specific objectives of the project are the following:a) to improve the expertise of the partnership, to enable them to work with NEETs more efficiently;b) to support unemployed young people and NEETs, and particularly those in long-term unemployment to build competencies that will give them better chances to be included in the labor market;c) to develop the methodological framework and tools to support development of the employability skills of young people;d) to enhance active citizenship on local and global level within a group of traditionally passive (long-term) unemployed young people;e) to contribute to improvements of the system or learning recognition within the Learning mobility.The CHARGER project was implemented by a partnership of youth organizations in Spain, France, Thailand, Poland, Nepal and India.The project had the following four main directions of action. The first one was implementation of the International training for trainers and youth workers ¨Empowerment of Young people by developing the employability skills¨ where participants got familiar with the concept of the employability competence framework and how to empower young people using them. Second stage was the local work that includes the outreach and trainings for local NEETs, focusing on the development of the employability skills. Meanwhile there were mobility of 19 EVS volunteers between all participating countries. The last stage was the dissemination and exploitation of results, where each partner will organize one daylong dissemination event. During the project we have developed the 3 video tutorials dealing with the concept of employability skills, and the following topics has been covered:1) What are the employ-ability skills?2) Employability skills that employers are looking for?3) Practical tips on how to work with young people.Besides the videos we have developed the reports and videos from the different activities, as well as magazine that describes the volunteers experience.
