In March 2021, the report on
unemployment levels in North Macedonia from the Agency of Labor showed that
Tetovo was the city with the highest unemployment rate. Thus, “For YOUth who
take the destiny in your hands - LEAD Hub”, came to be.
The project aims to build bridges
between the different business sectors and help young people enhance their
competitiveness in the labor market. Not only will the project offer training
and mentorship to 30 young people from the region, but it will also foster
dialogue and cooperation between the business sectors. By identifying and tackling
the needs of both employers and job seekers, the project will raise awareness
about the difficulties of youth, the requirements of the labor market and
provide an opportunity for the two to collaborate. Lastly, LeadHub and ILPP’s
online career fair will support and allow the youth to create, follow and
develop their entrepreneurial initiatives.
LEAD Hub will encompass activities, during which group of experts will be able to mentor and lead young people to build
their business idea, grow it to a business plan and provide them with
information about the operation. The newly established start-up ideas will be
able to use the premises free of charge, as a place where they can start
working and grow their business to become more sustainable. During this time,
as the activity is going on, the project will cooperate with institutions and
other business angels, in order to seek for possibilities to finance and
support the newly created start-up ideas.
