On 19 January, World Vision Georgia organised a four-day training on project writing for youth club leaders and their mentors. The event was held in the framework of the EU-funded ‘SAY YES – Skills for Jobs’ project.
The series of sessions aimed at promoting active youth participation in community development, and to encourage participants to venture into sustainable and viable income-generating projects, with a view to create sustainable employment opportunities for young people.
Following the training, the 28 participants from four different regions of Georgia will share their knowledge with other SKYE (Skills and Knowledge for Youth Economic Empowerment) club members from their regions.
SKYE clubs give an opportunity to young people aged 16 to 25 to learn and take care of their community together. They are designed to run on an 18-month cycle, and provide practical and customised support for groups of 10 to 25 young people.
The SKYE clubs have been set up within the framework of the EU4Youth – SAY YES Skills for Jobs project, which is funded by the European Union and aims to contribute to jobs and self-employment among young women and men aged between 15 and 35 in Armenia and Georgia.
