Monday, 29 September 2014
The European Union will allocate EUR 105 M to fighting youth unemployment in Bulgaria, according to caretaker Labor and Social Policy Minister Yordan Hristoskov.
Speaking Friday in Plovdiv, Hristoskov announced that the program would be launched in October and it would include 8000 young people.
He made clear that employment offices across the country were accepting applications from employers and unemployed young people aged up to 22.
Hristoskov, as cited by the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency, informed that the EU program Youth Guarantee included two segments, one for them targeting young people who had completed a certain level of education and had a professional orientation, while the other one was focused on young people who did not fulfill the educational and professional requirements.
