Mission

What are the general and specific objectives?

One of the priorities of the recent years at all levels is to boost young people’s employability. Employment facilitates social inclusion for a wide range of marginalized citizens since it gives a sense of stability which bring to the development of oneself. However there is a needs of promoting a job-related culture that gives value even to the humblest working activity.
