The project Nurturing the world can be a job is designed to raise the capacity of non-governmental organisations from Western Balkans countries, to empower young people in finding their career path, especially those with fewer opportunities, and to promote the NGO sector as employer. In order to achieve these aims, the project foresees the following work packages:

1) management and coordination (WP1)
2) building capacities of youth organisations (WP2)
3) empowering young people (WP3)
4) promoting NGO sector as employer (WP4).

In the work packages the project partners will target the next groups:

1) representatives of the project partners that will be involved in the National support points
2) NGOs working with young people and their representatives
3) young people aged between 18 and 30, with a special focus on young people with fewer opportunities.

One of the major results of the project will be the establishment of National support points in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, and Montenegro which will be the main actors to build the capacity of NGOs and contribute to the career development of young people. National support points will organise seminars and workshops for young people and representatives of NGOs, provide career counselling, and support the implementation of apprenticeships in which 90 young people (54 of which will be young people with fewer opportunities) will have their first working experience in the NGO sector and so gain the skills and competencies necessary to participate in the labour market. The main activities for the promotion of the project and for the dissemination of the results will be the Campaign Nurturing the world can be a job.

Through the campaign the general public will be informed about the work of the NSPs and young people will be invited and encouraged to apply for the apprenticeships. The aim of the campaign will be to raise awareness about NGOs being important potential employers for young people
