Recipe for success – local youth employment initiatives

The topic of the 7th youth employment forum that the Youth Employment Project (YEP) with the support of the Swiss Government organised on 12 March 2015 in Jahorina was: What are the opportunities that can be provided for the youth in the BiH circumstances and that are in the spirit of the EU programme “A guarantee for the Youth”.

The forum served for the participants as a platform for discussing the models of partnership that would lead to more efficient youth employment programmes, by providing training, expert practice, internship or employment. During the forum, the experiences were exchanged between numerous stakeholders in the youth sector, such as the representatives of the public employment services, local management, employers, NGOs but also international donors.

The starting point of the discussion were the results of the YEP Local Initiative Programme that was initiated after the 4th Youth Employment Forum had been held in the same location over a year ago.

Amongst the recommendations of the new panel speakers there is the necessity of addressing the lack of information amongst the youth and their passiveness and working on establishing the legal and system framework to provide employment opportunities for the youth. The bulletin emphasizes that the recipe for successful youth employment are local initiative programmes, such as the Youth Startup Businesses financed by the local communities, in which the Institute for Youth Employment KULT together with 10 local communities worked, and continues to, for the purpose of promoting youth self-employment through initiating startup businesses.
