The UfM labelled project “YouMatch – Toolbox Project” has been officially launched in Amman on Wednesday 20 July on the occasion of the Regional Dialogue on Employment Services for Youth (MENA), co-organised by the Secretariat of the UfM and, Germany’s Agency for International Development (GIZ), promoter of the project.

The so-called Toolbox Project, developed under the UfM Med4Jobs initiative and to be implemented in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia, focusses on selected employment services for youth as pilot examples, taken from the service clusters of job orientation, job preparation or placement services. Based on good practices / case studies of existing approaches within the MENA region, peer working groups together with a facilitators’ team will analyse substantial challenges and success factors for the implementation of the identified tools, engage in the further development and elaboration of innovative labour market solutions and ultimately implement innovation and transfer projects in partner countries.
The initiative will be presented at the upcoming UfM Ministerial on Labour and Employment, to be held in Jordan, on 27 September 2016. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
