Welcome to the Youth Employability working group of UniteIT!
With high youth unemployment rates across Europe and an estimate of 900.000 unfilled ICT jobs before 2020, we need to empower young people now.
The focus of this group “Youth Employability” is young people and their digital skills that are required for jobs and future careers. The goal of our working group is to create coalition of different actors and stakeholders with different backgrounds who are contributing to development of young people’s digital skills and motivating them to choose ICT careers.
Potential group members are: representatives of NGOs and public institutions, libraries, schools, universities, industry organizations, ICT students, trainers, employers, researchers and all others willing to support youth employment and ICT career development.
For any questions, please contact the group moderator Mara Jakobsone.
