„Every human has the right to work, freedom of job choice, right to appropriate and satisfactory job conditions and unemployment protection.“

(Universal Declaration of Human Rights of United Nations, of 10 of December 1948, article 23, section 1.)

The unemployment is a phenomenon of Orava region. Recently, a large number of jobs were retracted for the sake of rationalization process eventually structural transformations. This situation is serious for everyone, especially for women who are forced to returnt to households and for the youth, who find it difficult to access to the labour market. One of the objectives of the European Union employment policy is the support of the equal access to the labour market. For this aim there was established the initiative EQUAL with the role to develop and verify new methods and Instruments against discrimination and unequality on the labour market. In relation to this initiative the project of the Information youth centre Orava under the name „Job centre and career – consulting for the youth of the Orava region“ and the module of the youth innovative education concerning the sphere of career and personal increase were created. The project is assigned for students of secondary schools before termination of education.

The objective of the EQUAL project under the name „Job centre and career – consulting for the youth of the Orava region“, coordinated by the Information youth centre Orava is to provide for more efficient instruments for youth in the sphere of successful integration into the labour market (through the medium of education, career consulting and development of vocational skills) and to eliminate a number of unemployed youth – graduates of secondary schools in the Orava region.

  1. I agree, this project is a good chance to encourage and support youth people. I know this kind of projects or organizations “job centres” also from Germany, especially in big cities, which provide young people a wide range of opportunties for a successful entry in the working world. Offering the youth a qualified education prevents not only unemployment but also the risk of criminality among frustated, pessimistic youth or youth with migration background….
    Job centres should be formed in most regions.
