About RISE Project Erasmus
The mismatch between current job openings and young people in Europe can be attributed to a lack of knowledge from both sides of the needs and skills available. Most youths lack the soft skills to present themselves to employers and conversely employment agencies & youth workers do not always understand the potential the youths in front of them have. We aim to not only improve communication between youths and potential employers but also give the tools to gauge social skills and aptitudes better. By creating an accessible platform for both the young jobseekers and the employers from diverse cultural, social and economic backgrounds that is focused on equal opportunity and the removing of bias in an inclusive and supportive training design, the RISE project will facilitate the inclusion and training of all European citizens and migrants living in remote areas or facing difficulties of socio-economic nature. Pilots within 3 countries with youth workers & employment agencies will help train agents to recognise the potential in young people and offer them a pathway to explore & present themselves better. Workshops with youth workers, an online training curriculum & digital materials will help the employment agents improve their success in placing youths in better jobs more suited to them.
