Youth unemployment has been a problem in Europe for a long time, but it took a particularly bad development with the economic crisis following the credit crunch of 2008.

Even though economic observers claim economic recovery for large parts of Europe, the unemployment rates of young people are still double as high as those of the general population. In this context, civil society organisations play a crucial role to support the integration of young people into the labour market by using various educational and informational support measures.

The PBA is part of a 22-months project “YEES – Building local capacities for Youth

Employability and Entrepreneurial Skills” which aims to build sustainable capacities for youth employability and entrepreneurial skill development in BiH and MNE for local youth

stakeholders by pursuing the following


  • To increase the competences of youth workers to foster young people’s employment opportunities through educational and informational programmes including on

entrepreneurship education.

  • To strengthen cross-sectoral cooperation between CSOs, municipal youth structures and the private sector for raising youth employability and entrepreneurial soft skill development among young people.
  • To enhance the availability and accessibility of educational resources and lifelong learning opportunities on youth employability and entrepreneurial soft skill development


  • fostering cooperation and exchanges in the field of youth between Programme Countries and Partner Countries from the Western Balkans
  • improving the quality and recognition of youth work and non-formal learning in the Western Balkans and enhance synergies and cooperation with the labour market and public sector
