Youth unemployment continues to be a big problem in Europe. Our young women must struggle with the youth unemployment problem as well as time gender inequality and equality of opportunity. Some business sectors are under the male dominance due to social, cultural or similar unwritten rules and there are big prejudices against the employment of female employee even if they are qualified. However one of the most important values of EU is equality of opportunity.
Pi Youth Association gets into the act about youth rights and problem and plans to organize a youth exchange in İzmir for the youth with our partners from the different countries in Europe. Our aim is to create an equality of gender and opportunity especially in the area of employment, raise awareness about this subject and increase of awareness and familiarity of EU’s values on this subject.
