The Institute for Youth Development KULT is implementing activities within the initiative Youth startup businesses, intended to lower youth unemployment by introducing institutional mechanisms for providing unemployed youth interested in becoming entrepreneurs with support in the form of financial and advisory assistance. 9 youth startups have been funded so far, and 5 more municipalities participating in the project published public calls for funding more than 20 youth startups.
Representatives of the Institute for Youth Development KULT met with Mr ?uro Topi?, the Municipal Mayor of OraĹˇje, to discuss the successful activities in the municipality, programmes which procured funding for 3 youth startups as part of the Youth Employment Projects. The Municipal Mayor and the Youth Officer were informed about the programme, goals and successful activities implemented thus far. Also discussed were programmes developed by the Municipality, funds for 2015 and problems youth in OraĹˇje face.
The Municipality of OraĹˇje showed interest and willingness to help youth, particularly unemployed ones, to improve their position, and has therefore decided to join the initiative of the Institute.
We are hoping to successfully implement activities in the following period.
Activity funded by the “Youth Employment Project” of the Government of Switzerland.
