‘Next move’ - comprehensive educational program in the area of personal development and social activity of young adults entering the job market - it responds to a deepening issue of insufficient social skills and economic engagement of the youth in European countries, most often resulting in their professional inactivity after leaving school, taking up positions below their qualifications or quitting the job early on. It is because of work that young people become independent and confident citizens. Poor development opportunities worsen their professional perspectives Failure to find a job and keep it, and limited self-study opportunities cause young people to doubt their self-worth. To top that, professional inactivity of young adults has a negative impact on European economy and aging societies.

The way to address these issues is smart education, adapted to ever-changing reality, before they enter the job market and then at the workplace, as well as creating conditions that favour their social skill development. Partnership of three varied institutions (Poland: a foundation, Greece: non-profit organisation, Spain: training and consulting syndicate) decided that a proper base for those conditions to be built on is comprehensive cooperation between private sector and non-governmental organisations, which allows for creating an ‘economy ecosystem’.

Three main themes: supporting the potential of people working with adolescents, enabling the adolescents to enter adulthood and job market, developing their competence, as well as supporting social inclusion and increasing the chances of employment for young adults with limited resources, all create the axis of the ‘Next move’ project and respond to needs of two target groups - young adults entering the job market, and trainers, youth coaches and HR workers. The project’s main objective is to increase professional potential of trainers and HR workers through innovative development program, which allows the youth between the ages of 18 and 26 to gain practical knowledge and soft skills necessary for taking up and keeping first job within the local or international market.
 
The project’s result is a joint compilation and promotion of the ‘Next move’ youth development program, which would include an e-handbook for youth coaches and HR workers, as well as ‘Your move’ mobile app, developing the youth’s soft skills necessary for taking up and keeping first job.

Materials provided in ‘Your move’ mobile app will further cover the topics discussed during the workshops run by trainers or HR workers. E-flashcards will convey key information in accessible form.

The app will constitute a 30-day user transformation program, supporting their job market adaptation. The effects of the project will underpin new methods, tools and materials, perfectly tied with new challenges of EU growth strategies for the years 2010-2020, designed to enhance development: economy based on knowledge and innovation (intelligent, more competitive skill achievement), economy with high employment rates, economy that guarantees social and territorial cohesion, as well as growth supporting social inclusion.
