Improved Labor Integration of Vulnerable Youth in Armenia through Apprenticeship

In July 2020, in partnership with the Armenia-based NGO, Miassine, GAN Global won funds from the City of Geneva to implement the Improved Labor Integration of Vulnerable Youth in Armenia through Apprenticeship project.

Miassine is implementing the project in the country’s six regions, Chirak, Lori, Tavoush, Gegharkunik, Syunik, and Erevan for 500 youth from socially vulnerable backgrounds, particularly for those who grew up in orphanages. Throughout the project, the youth will benefit from personalized and work-based career guidance to strengthen their ability to choose a profession and undertake an apprenticeship towards it. Simultaneously, employers benefit by seeing the advantages that an apprentice can bring to their business.

The project receives technical support from the ILO and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland (HES-SO Valais).
