The Youth Employment Project (YEP), that is being realised with the support of the Switzerland Government, is organising the 7th Youth Employment Forum: â€žA Guarantee for the Youthâ€ś. The results of the local YEP initiatives will be presented in the Forum â€“ the initiatives are a part of a pilot programme that ensured employment for 120 young people in 2014 through 13 NGOs in the partnership with public employment services.
A large number of representatives from the local institutions, employers, public employment services, NGOs, international donors and the youth will participate in the forum discussion. The 7th Forum on youth employment will be held on Thursday, on 12 March 2015, at 10 am in the Hotel Termag on Jahorina. The topic of the Forum is creating an opportunity for youth employment, and the task is to define the ways to support the youth, according to the example set by the Guarantee for the Youth Programme. With this programme the countries in the EU have taken the responsibility to ensure that a youth’s application for unemployment will be turned into a quality opportunity for employment, training or additional education in the shortest time possible.
By presenting successful models in the Forum, answers to the following questions might be provided: is the realisation of such a programme possible in the conditions in Bosnia and Herzegovina; what resources are lacking for its realisation; how to develop the lacking resources; and how to ensure dedication, engagement and coordinated action of different actors? The recommendations of the Forum are supposed to provide directions on how to increase the number, successfulness and sustainability of the youth employment programme.
