About the project

Education and training should match the labour market needs. Also, theoretical knowledge should be in line with its practical application. They are like two sides of the same coin. Employers want employees with both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills.

This project is entitled “PRAXIS”, which is defined as the process of using a theory or something which has been learned in a practical way. Its overall objective is to create favorable conditions for youth to gain better access to the labor market in the cross-border area of Kosovo* and Montenegro. More specifically, it is aimed at increasing youth employability in Kosovo and Montenegro by improving career guidance, offering soft skill training, internships and volunteering opportunities. In other words, this project will help young people in both countries to be more competitive in the labour market.

During its implementation period, 1000 pupils, students and unemployed youth will be offered career guidance and counseling sessions to make informed decisions; and 400 students and unemployed youth will receive certified soft skills training to actively search for a job and sustainably access the labor market. Also, 50 students and unemployed youth will gain their first professional experience through a quality internship and volunteering programme.


It is expected that the project will enhance a dialogue between public authorities, professionals, employers and youth, thus contributing to exchange of good practices and transfer of know-how. In that way it will be contributed to inclusion, employability and labour mobility of youth in the cross-border area.

Implemented by the NGO Monitor Center for Media and Democracy, with an aim to help reducing the level of peer violence against Roma youth. In order to raise awareness of peer violence against members of the Roma community, this sub-grant included production of several research articles. In the research process were also involved journalists from the Roma portal “Romalitika”.
