Learn-Act-Grab the chance: Action Cyprus helps tackle youth unemployment

Action Cyprus, partnering with Europolis Consultants, successfully concluded an eight-month public awareness raising campaign tackling youth unemployment in Cyprus. With the slogan “Turn your back on unemployment: Learn – Act – Grab the chance!” the consortium communicated employment and study opportunities to thousands of young people who were “Not in Education, Employment or Training” (the so-called NEETS) across Cyprus. The overall aim of the campaign was to ensure that participants received the knowledge and skills that will empower them in their search for a job, or the spark their interest to start their own business. To this end, Action Cyprus organised three workshops on developing employability skills, digital skills and enhancing entrepreneurial spirit, in addition to an extensive digital media campaign and a youth employment information day. The digital media component of the campaign aimed to engage young Cypriot NEETs, by providing facts and figures about youth employment, as well as specific information relating to employment schemes, traineeship and work experience opportunities, coupled with information about youth entrepreneurship. The peak of the campaign was the Youth Employment Information day, organised at the Mall of Cyprus, attended by 15 participating organisations who were given the opportunity to promote their employment, traineeship, volunteering, and mobility schemes and programmes to young people.
