Increasing the interest and motivation for studying and for successful professional realization, as well as supporting young people in their first steps of their career path are in the heart of #YouthEmpowered program in Bulgaria.
The key partner of the program is Junior Achievement Bulgaria and this partnership, combined with partnerships with other Non-governmental organizations like Teach for Bulgaria, AIESEC, etc. were essential for the success of the program last year. In 2018 different types of professionals (Coca-Cola employees, specialists from NGOs & business, vloggers, journalists, school and university lecturers, entrepreneurs, etc.), became mentors of the young people and thus, increased their employability. A total of 2,875 youths were trained in 2018 by 93 mentors.
