Youth unemployment continues to be a big problem in our country and all over the world. If we need to give an example for the importance of this subject; while the rate of unemployment appears with single digit, youth unemployment seems with two digits and it doubles as normal unemployment. On the other hand production sector from which is expected to play an important role in the development of our country complains about not finding qualified personnel. In other words there is nonequilibrium and discrepancy between supply and demand in the labor market especially for the youth.
We think that vocational training will play a big role in the solution of youth unemployment. Pi Youth Association believing in the necessity of vocational training’s popularization and its partners have come together again for the project Genç Bak-İŞ 2. We have taken the opportunity for determining major obstacles against the youth’s tending to vocational training with the survey studies within the scope of our project Genç Bak-İŞ carried out previously. One of the most important obstacles is not to inform the youth adequately and accurately on vocational training. Thereupon we research what is needed for the youth’s having better guidance service on this subject. Especially for the youth who is at the parting of the ways to get involved in vocational training. From 81 provinces 81 leaders, who are active in civil society works will attend and our project comprises of 3 regional meetings and 1 national summit. All meetings of the project will take place in İzmir, field activities and survey studies will be carried out in 81 provinces.
The participants will gain opportunity of getting necessary information and experiences in the field works and survey studies with regional meetings. At the same time they will meet up with decision makers in the national summit, analyze the results of field works and create policy offer text for the problem we are in solution seeking. Popular learning methods will be used and team work, roleplay, workshop and panel discussion etc. will involve in.
