Win a trip to Cracow, Poland by sharing your youth voice

Lend your voice to support equal opportunities in youth employment

Win a trip to Poland and lend your voice to support youth employment!

How would you like to travel to Poland to give your views on equal opportunities on youth employment?

We are offering one lucky person the opportunity to travel to Cracow, Poland to represent Youth Employment UK as a commentator on equal opportunities and local action for Youth Employment. Youth Employment UK have been invited to participate in the 3rd European Congress of Local Governments taking place in Cracow, Poland between 27th and 28th of March.

“Equal opportunities – local action for Youth Employment”

Youth Employment UK have been asked to contribute to the discussion “Equal opportunities – local action for Youth Employment”.

As a result of the Economic Crisis the models of employment in Western states have been severely altered. The necessity of budget cuts has decreased the number of available job posts and made them less accessible. According to the European Commission young people, entering the job market for the first time, are one of the most negatively affected age groups in this case. In many EU regions the level of unemployment among people aged under 25 exceeds 50% and those working are often subject to unstable contracting. What should be done to protect the youth from social exclusion and long-term unemployment? 

Lend your voice to support equal opportunities in youth employment

We are offering 1 young person, aged 16-24, the opportunity to accompany us to Poland to be part of this panel as a commentator.


To be in with the chance to win you will be required to research and explore the work that takes place in your local community/town/region to support young people, tell us what works well, what challenges are being faced and what your ideas would be to practically and fairly support young people into employment.
