YES Project

Especially for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), insertion of young people is often a big challenge. Many young applicants are early school leavers, have failed to complete vocational education and training, and often they are socio-economically and/or personally disadvantaged.

YES offers SME support opportunities for the employment and introduction of those young persons.

YES is a European project including 8 partner institutions specialised in adult education. The project running from November 2007 - October 2009 is financed by the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme. It builds on and combines the results of the preceding projects EuroJobMediator and ADEC - Adult Educator in Company, which both developed useful resources for actors in the youth employment process.

YES addresses recruiters selecting job applicants and introduce them into their company as well as mentors, in-company trainers of apprentices, instructors and other senior members of staff who supervise young people at work in SME.
