Centre for Monitoring and Research (CeMI), since June 2017, implements the project entitled “Training of young people from the northern municipalities of Montenegro for the labor market”.
The aim of this project is to contribute to the improvement of the socio-economic situation of young people in the northern municipalities (Pljevlja, Nikšić, Žabljak, Plužine), creating the opportunity for reducing unemployed young people, promoting the active job search and self-employment and strengthening young people’s skills by preparing them for the labor market . This project will also contribute to overcoming the gap between the school system and the needs of the labor market. The aim of the activities is the creation of a network between local authorities, schools of the Employment Service, private sector and non-governmental organizations in the northern municipalities, strengthening of personal working skills and expertise of high school students in targeted municipalities, and increasing the level of public awareness on the possibilities of overcoming youth unemployment. The project will focus on the implementation of part of the measures of the National Action Plan for Youth, which envisages harmonization of supply and demand in the labor market; stimulate programs for youth entrepreneurship and conduct campaigns in order to emphasize the importance of professional competences in the field of employment.
In the framework of project implementation, CeMI will organize meetings with local decision makers, design and implementation of needs assessment in all schools in targeted municipalities, trainings and conferences, through which it will try to involve all stakeholders and contribute to improving the position of young people.
