Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange project called “Your Job – DIY” which will take place from 28th April until 6th May 2019 in Sürgavere, Viljandimaa, Estonia.

Topic: youth unemployment & entrepreneurship


Many young people are facing unemployment. This is due to many different reasons like low educational background, no experience, no skills, high demands from the employers, social difficulties etc. The reasons list is a very long one. What is important is to motivate and empower the young people that they can be who they want, and they are valued and there are more options than actually being an employee.

With this youth exchange we would like to give young people the opportunity to discover the skills they have and the possibilities that are out there. We create an environment for the participants to get to know themselves and their abilities more deeply, and learn about the entrepreneurship world.

During the exchange we will visit some young entrepreneurs in Tartu and learn about their success stories.


This project aims to bring together young minds to tackle the problem of youth unemployment in different regions and to find great solutions for the issue. The project aims to empower young people to find or create their own jobs.
