Kosovo Generation Unlimited is a multi-stakeholder platform which brings together the private and public sectors and development partners to foster collaboration and promote youth employability and empowerment through skills development and work experience.
The project aims to scale up this successful skills development and employability initiative through an expanded partnership between the Institutions of Kosovo, private sector companies, development partners and young people themselves.
Kosovo Generation Unlimited has initially started on 2020 with an engagement of around 1400 youngsters that have benefited their first internship experience in more than 250 private sector businesses and different organizations from throughout Kosovo. 30% of youngsters out of this number, have been offered full time job after they have completed their internship.
