Youth Empowered

Empowering Young People to Pursue their dreams.

We stand by youth in Cyprus through Youth Empowered! The program brings together like-minded companies and HR experts, being the most inclusive, free and open corporate initiative with the ambition to help the young people in Cyprus become employable. Since 2017 it has provided skills, mentoring and professional networking to hundreds of people, enabling them to make a positive change in their lives and pursue their dreams.

This long-term flagship community program started in 2017 and is targeted to youngsters between 18-30 years old that are not in the job market, education or training. With the key message “Discover, Develop, Succeed” the aim of the Program is to actively engage 3,000 people by 2020 and enable them to make a positive change in their lives by pursuing meaningful job opportunities.

The program has initiated a coalition for Cyprus’s Youth, with some of the largest, most responsible and pioneering employers offering mentoring and employment opportunities. Fifteen companies and organisations such as CIM, Microsoft, EY, Delema/McCANN, CYTA, ANT1, INBusiness, Cyprus Marketing Youth Society, ergodotisi.com, AKTI, Grantexperts, Compass4U and Gloria Jeans, joined forces voluntarily and created a dynamic and effective network to spread knowledge and contacts.
