BCYF's Youth Employability Program

Commitment by

Balkan Children and Youth Foundation

BCYF's Youth Employment Program works to address the issue of high unemployment levels among individuals in the 18-30 years old age range in Macedonia and Kosovo. The organization has created a network of employers and young individuals looking for internship and job-shadowing opportunities through public outreach and a strong awareness building program on local media. In addition, the program has funded training for young individuals looking to enter the workforce. As a result of their efforts, more than 150 young individuals found internship opportunities in their areas of interest in order to jump-start their careers.
