The project Eu-Africa on the Move for a Smart and Inclusive Growth is a large-scale project promoted by the Italian association Work in Progress. The Project will involve 180 young unemployed from the Partner Country: Portugal, Romania, Italy, Burkina Faso, Benin and Cape Verde in order to contribute to improving the quality of support system for youth activities and the capabilities of civil society organizations in youth field. All Partner organizations have a strong mission to fight against youth unemployment by turning 180 participants from unemployed to youth workers following a strategic path in order to make young people aware of the professional empowerment and to allow them to acquire professional competences in the youth cooperation field by local and international activities in a Euro- Africa dimension.

The project aims to support the mobility of youth unemployed from 2 continents, giving them professional competences and knowledge in order to become active citizens able to turn ideas into action, developing youth entrepreneurship and improve the employability reality. This intercultural exchange will foster capacity building for youth organizations with a view to promoting the acquisition of new skills in order to enrich the youth profile as professionals in non-formal context.
