About the project: The project aim was to raise the level of socio-professional integration for 80 youth from four pilot schools in Alba County, by implementing an accompaniment program of support and practical training, in the framework of a public private partnership between institutions and organizations responsible for the implementation of employment and youth policies.
Beneficiaries were 88 young students, classes X and XI of four pilot schools with technological profile from Alba County, under former mono-industrial areas with difficult economic situation and low potential for ensuring the socio-professional integration of young people, namely: Technological high school „Timotei Cipariu” Blaj, Technical College “I.D. Lăzărescu”, Cugir, Technological high school Ocna Mureş and Economic College „Dionisie Pop Marţian”, Alba Iulia.
The support program dedicated to the youth included vocational guidance activities carried out by 18 teachers-counsellors (information, counselling and mediation), entrepreneurial skills training and vocational training through internships, workshops, study visits.
Following the implementation of project activities resulted an online platform www.cvact.ro – resource centre for students, teachers, parents, business environment, institutions; eight virtual start-ups achieved in pilot schools, a guide „Methods and tools to encourage young people for self-knowledge and career planning” and a Centralized Joint Action Plan developed within the partnership established by the project, aiming to prevent and reduce unemployment among young graduates.
