On 26 December, a coordination meeting was held between youth organisations at Mtskheta City Hall in Georgia. Youth clubs created under the EU4Youth ‘SAY YES – Skills for Jobs’ project outlined their activities, while youth organisations and the Mtskheta City Hall discussed ongoing and planned activities. The meeting highlighted specific areas of future cooperation between young people and the local authority.

Successful leaders and members of the SKYE Club set up under EU4Youth were also awarded with certificates. SKYE (Skills and Knowledge for Youth Economic Empowerment) clubs give an opportunity to young people aged 16-25 to learn and take care of their community together. They are designed to run on an 18-month cycle, and provide practical and customised support for groups of 10-25 young people.

The SKYE clubs have been set up within the framework of the EU4Youth – SAY YES Skills for Jobs project, which is funded by the European Union and aims to contribute to jobs and self-employment among young women and men aged between 15 and 35 in Armenia and Georgia, particularly those with fewer opportunities and from vulnerable groups, by carrying out a series of activities focused on education and training, advocacy and youth work. It is implemented in Georgia by World Vision Georgia.
