The project partners will make a network to work together and share their experiences and views on how young people can create their own local jobs. The partners will establish local training and production centres and use a new model called RAISE to help young people use the resources of the countryside and find new ways of working together in the local community. Older people will be called on to mentor the young, but new technology will also be used. The local communities will use the internet to sell their products and attract investment.

Target groups:

  • 2000 primarily rural 25-29 year olds not in employment, education or training
  • Women and Roma
  • Non-traditional employers and sectors
