International project Support Programme for Youth "Online Career" is aimed to help young people who have fewer opportunities to find jobs on the local labour market to get access to the international labour market using the means of Internet and modern informational technologies.
Our final beneficiaries are the young people coming from non-capital, small cities, rural, distant areas — those, who do not have much choices to find appropriate career opportunities locally: young people just finished school or university; high school students, university students; unemployed; over skilled employed young people (those whose jobs are not relevant to their competences)
Our target groups — those who will be directly positively affected by the project actions – are the youth workers and non-governmental organisations from EU and Eastern Partnership countries.

Contacting all the partners. Set up the detailed plan of the project implementation. Preparations.
12 participants (Armenia, Hungary, Romania and Ukraine) came to the study visit to Szeged, Hungary hosted by Innovaform Kozhasznu Nonprfit Kft. Partners learned about experience of the hosting organisation in the projects aimed at enhancing youth employability, usage of ICT tools in their work, and met local organisations implementing the projects aimed at youth employability. Also participants discussed the working plan for the further research stage.
Representatives of 4 partner organisations (Armenia, Hungary, Romania and Ukraine) met to summarise the research results, to plan future activities and to split tasks. The detailed outline of the course was designed on the meeting.
Each of 4 partners was working on one of the course topics. It was challenging to work on a distance, however we made a good product at the end!
Youth workers from all 8 partner organisations took part in the training course. TC was dedicated to the coaching and mentoring of young people in their career building on the online job market. Participants learned about the developed online course and how they can use it online and ‘live’; also they've got trained on coaching and mentoring of young people in the field of the project theme.
The partner organisations supported the training of the first groups of young people using the tools of online course and coaching competences acquired on the TC. In total we trained over 100 people in 8 countries.
The open access to the course was officially launched. The information about the course was spread among our partners, young people and widely in the Internet.
Evaluation of the project with all the partners and participants.
