In September association Langas į ateitį is going to successfully complete its activities within the project Trust Yourself which is funded by the European Social Fund. The project is aimed at providing young people the opportunity to develop work related computer literacy skills. Since March of 2014 the Langas į ateitį in partnership with public libraries has already provided opportunity to 1375 young people to strengthen or obtain new ICT work skills and become digital leaders in their communities. ICT training activities are supported by Microsoft YouthSpark programme as well. 

The project is focused on 16-25 years old youth who are unemployed, not studying nor actively participating in the labour market. The objective of the project is to encourage integration of young people into the labour market or education system through the rehabilitation, preparation for employment and experience of non-governmental organizations.

According to the Lithuanian Municipal Public Library Association director Danguolė Abazoriuvienė – regional libraries are on a new mission – to encourage young people to change their lives and integrate into educational institutions or the labour market. Youth is being encouraged not with slogans, but by providing them with specific knowledge needed at work. Currently libraries have a strong abundance of services and human resources.
