Orange Poland runs job skills scheme for young adults leaving care

Tuesday 4 September 2018 | 10:36 CET | News
Orange Poland runs a project dedicated for young people aged 16 - 21 who have come from orphanages and foster families, aiming to reduce the unemployment rate, which is rather high in this group at 45 percent. Young people who have left care find it especially difficult to get a job as soon as they are without a home upon reaching adulthood. FabLab powered by Orange runs a project called Young Makers, which will offer training in soft skills, new technologies and traditional crafts to 36 participants until the end of the school year, aiming to increase their employment chances.
