RAY: Rural Active Youth Job Portal

  • Project №:2018-2-BG01-KA205-048238
RAY - Bulgaria


The current social conditions in Europe and in the project partner countries in particular, are not friendly towards young job seekers who often seek for opportunities in the bigger cities or abroad. This initiative comes from the real need of young people to find appropriate jobs in their local geographically remote areas (not far from where they live). Very often in rural areas young people face geographical, economical and social obstacles are at high risk of social exclusion. The RAY project will contribute to the social inclusion of young people in rural areas by an innovative Job Search Platform for youth which will work as a meeting point between young job seekers and employers from local rural areas. In addition, the project will empower young people through the Cutting-edge Training on job search.

Eurostat 2014 data on NEETs shows EU rates of 16.5%. Only 7.5% are unemployed persons, i.e. have had a job and are seeking one. 7.8% of the NEETs are totally inactive people, i. e. are not interested in either education or training or in employment.

    By addressing the above problems the partnership is striving to achieve the following:
  • To enhance the capacity of rural youth workers to support NEETs and get them involved in local community life, the training system and/or the labour market.
  • To provide non-formal learning opportunities for people active in youth work from rural areas.
  • To foster quality improvements in the youth work of the participating organizations.

Rechance Biz aims to examine how each partner country can encourage long term unemployed people to consider self employment as a realistic and viable method to earn an income.
