The Tour4Youth project is about improving employment opportunities of young people living in the Central Baltic rural areas to encourage them to get bound to these areas and establish their life in their community. The project builds a bridge for this generation to enter the labour market and earn a decent living. The focus of the project is on the labour-intensive tourism, hospitality, and restaurant sectors, which are among the biggest employers of young people and a lifeline for their employment due to structural changes in rural employment landscape.

Expected results

The Tour4Youth project increases young people’s competitiveness on labour market by providing them various, targeted labour market services. The main activity is a tailored training programme with an online training course and a short-time work scheme locally or cross-borders. As the project is implemented in cooperation with VET institutions, public employment offices and employers, it improves their access to quality employment and provides competencies to build sustainable, goal-oriented careers.
