Over 5500 people have participated during the last 1,5 years in our #YouthEmpowered program, which aims to enhance the chances of young people in the labour market. The program, which offers free trainings for NEET youth, disadvantaged groups, young moms and expectant mothers, and people with disabilities, have gained over 4700 online participants until the middle of May. The program’s in person, day-long trainings have been attended by over 800 people since the start of the program in 2017. The number of participants is growing at a good pace to reach its goal: reaching 8000 participants by the end of 2020.
Our #YouthEmpowered program was started 1,5 years ago, with the aim to enhance the chances of young people in the labour market. During this time, the program has already reached over 30 locations of the country, with over 4700 registered participants for our online trainings, and over 800 participants in our in-person trainings and events, 200 of which being young mothers.
The program works closely together with several associations, training centers and foundations, operating with over 10 professional trainers and coaches, in order to engage our target groups in the most suitable way.
Majority of the participants, over 71% are women, and both the online and the in person, day-long trainings proved to be especially popular among young women and mothers from Budapest. To complement the trainings of this target group, we organise workshops and roundtable discussions as well. The next such event is going to be organised together with Loffice Coworkid, on the 4th of June. During this event, participants of the workshops will learn about kick-starting their own business, how to use social media to build it, as well as about the legal background of a new venture.
