EU4Youth helps Belarusian youth with employment

A network of petrol stations in Belarus employed 23 disadvantaged young people during July and August this year, in the framework of the EU4Youth project for ‘Employability and Stability in Armenia, Belarus and Ukraine’.

Thanks to the EU project, the young people were able to gain work experience, to develop personal skills, such as time management, teamwork, diligence, and communication, and to gain an understanding of the rights and duties of the employee.

“This is my first work place. Now I understood what it means to earn money. I have learned the value of money,” said Nadezhda Gurinovich, one of the beneficiaries of the project.

“Thanks to the job, I improved my financial condition. I realise I have to work hard to earn money,” said fellow participant Artem Suvorov.

The Employability and stability in Armenia, Belarus and Ukraine project is funded by the European Union under its EU4Youth initiative. The project contributes to creating better prospects for employment and entrepreneurship among disadvantaged youth and to increasing their active participation in the labour market in Armenia, Belarus and Ukraine.
