Summary of the project

Data on unemployment in Serbia are devastating. Young people — especially the growing number of secondary school graduates—lose the opportunity to enjoy successful and rewarding careers. At the same time, Serbian companies suffer from competitiveness disadvantages as they become less able to cope with today’s “war for talent”. Serbian economic competitiveness has begun to suffer as our schools and communities lose the capacity to develop a more creative and entrepreneurial talent base. The proposed project focuses on preparing secondary vocational school students not to find and get a job, but to create a job. The goal of the project is to ensure that each secondary school graduate has available educational opportunities to explore his or her entrepreneurial potential.
