PRISTINA, 21  October 2022 - Ministry of Finance, Labor and Transfers, in partnership with UNICEF Kosovo and the Kosovo CSR Network are launching a new phase of the Kosovo Generation Unlimited (K-GenU) program which aims to unlock the power of youth by providing internships, mentoring and training for 10,000 young people over the next 2 years. 

Kosovo Generation Unlimited is a multi-stakeholder platform which brings together the private and public sectors and development partners to foster collaboration and promote youth employability and empowerment through skills development and work experience.

With the leadership of the Ministry of Finance, Labor and Transfers, UNICEF and Kosovo CSR Network are scaling up this successful skills development and employability initiative through an expanded partnership between the Institutions of Kosovo, private sector companies, development partners and young people themselves. 

The first round of placements, to cover the period until the end of 2022, will engage young people in paid internship opportunities in private and public entities. K-GenU is for everyone, and young people ages 16-24 years old from all backgrounds and educational levels are encouraged to apply. To learn more about K-GenU or to register for this opportunity, go to: www.kosovogenu.com

The K-GenU platform, also offers young people many opportunities to develop their skills through tailored trainings, to connect with mentors who will accompany their internships and help improve their transition from school to work, and to get their first work experience through matching with interested employers.

K-GenU aims to develop skills and enhance the employability of young people who may not otherwise have opportunities to be empowered, and has a special focus on reaching adolescent girls and boys and young men and women aged 16-24 years from marginalized groups and areas. This includes adolescents and youth from non-majority communities, those with functional difficulties and disabilities; and those from rural areas, as well as those not currently in any employment, education, or training.
