Education to Employment (E2E) program aims to increase youth employability in Serbia in a sustainable and socially inclusive way. All of our activities are directed towards two goals:
The first, we want to support respective ministries to improve employment-related public policies, both through analysis and support for social innovation.
The second goal is to create a system which will allow Serbia’s youth to improve their chances of being employed through innovative unemployment reduction solutions which we test in five Serbian municipalities – Pirot, Knjazevac, Krusevac, Kragujevac and Novi Pazar.
Together with our local partners, E2E is working to identify the most successful cooperation model between the municipal administration, education institutions, business sectors and local community able to reducte of youth employment in a sustainable and socially inclusive way.
E2E uses a similar Swiss system of youth employment support as our role model. We plan to support partners in adapting this system – which offers different work based training, career guidance and counselling services – to fit the local needs and create an efficient employment support system for our youth.
