The project brings together 10 youth organizations and 1 coordinator, Building Bridges, youth association and specialised training provider. The project aims to improve youth workers competencies in relation with educational activities for youth workers in order to improve their competences in youth information related with employment and entrepreneurship.

The specific objectives are:

1. Show tools and job search strategies and promoting personal online branding in Europe.

2. To support the employment of young people for their professional career in Europe.

3. Define and complete a job profile with 2.0 tools.

4. Identify the profits of Web 2.0 for youth employment and enterpreneurship, making our job profile more interesting,broadcast applications, how to contact with companies, design and management of personal branding, communication, marketing, etc.

The needs that we identified refer to an improved training and labour system knowledge for youth workers. Although the partners encourage their staff to be actively engaged in personal and professional development opportunities, including through non-formal education activities and trainings, there is still the need of a unified approach that would allow youth workers to be involved in an efficient training and educational process meant to improve competencies required for raising the impact of inclusion activities and overcoming the various differences existent at national levels.
