Overcoming future anxiety among young people through Raising Awareness on Career Opportunities and fostering Self Confidence

EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2,  Youth
Coordination: Institut Regional d’Insertion Professionnelle et Sociale (France)

Duration: September 2022 – January 2024




The employment shock resulting from the pandemic struck young people most severely of all age cohorts: more workers aged 15–24 years lost their jobs and were put on furlough than those in older age groups. Two factors exposed younger workers to job loss: nearly half are employed on temporary contracts, which are easily terminated; and a disproportionate share work in sectors that were closed by government mandate – hospitality, retail and the arts. (Living and Working Conditions, Eurofound,2021).

Believe in YOUth aims to:

    • Inform youth about career opportunities and help them to reintegrate into training and employability levels by fostering their self confidence, providing role-models and providing roadmaps;
    • Increase the skills of youth centre workers in this regard.

 Concrete results of the project:

    • A structured set of competencies and Training Contents based on EU standards and methods on Future Anxiety on Young people and dealing ways (Career Management Toolkit).
    • A comprehensive guide for introduction to sector-based and transversal skills with collaborative activities (Transversal Skills Based Career Guide).
    • A new ICT-based educational tool with Open Educational Resources and Insight Bank for Learners and Youth Center Trainers (User interaction based e-Learning Platform).
