The “Youth Guarantee” Recommendation was established by the EU to ensure that all young people under the age of 25 are offered employment, continuous training, apprenticeship or work within a period of 4 months from the moment they become unemployed or exit formal education.
In the context of the implementation of the programme, two major surveys and 10 focus groups will be conducted in order to trace the current situation and the level of young people’s knowledge of the Youth Guarantee. Upon completion of these, a major media campaign will be carried out. Five young people will be selected as youth guarantee ambassadors and will actively participate in this media campaign through spots, but also in TV shows etc.
The partners of Youth Board of Cyprus for the implementation of the Active Youth Programme are the Department of Labor – the Ministry of Labor and Social Insurance, the Youth Council of Cyprus and the Cyprus Youth Organization.
The program is co-funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Social Inclusion.
