Initiatives to support to the social economy in Poland and to increase transparency of EU spending in Lithuania are recognised as innovative good practices
The ESF-funded project ‘Creation and Development of a Volunteering Community’ has just come to a successful close, having helped more than 500 unemployed young people in Lithuania take their first steps towards a career.
Some 1600 unskilled jobseekers have already obtained professional qualifications since the ESF-funded project ‘Improving competencies of unskilled people’ started in August 2014.
Instilling self-confidence in young people is at the heart of the ESF-funded project ‘Trust in Yourself’, run by the Lithuanian employment agency since 2013.
On 20 June 2014, the Commission adopted the Partnership Agreement with Lithuania, paving the way for more than €1.1 billion (current prices) in European Social Fund (ESF) funding in the next seven years, including measures for supporting youth employment.
