Our mission

We are a European community of young professionals aiming to fight youth unemployment through professional development.
We want to be the one stop shop of reference for our community to bridge the gap between young professionals and employers.
We chose sharing is caring as our motto solidarity, and we put passion and commitment at the heart of our business.

 

Our Goals

With our work we want to

  • Increase the employability of young professionals providing them with practical tools to learn how to land a job
  • Build a community where #SharingIsCaring is at the heart of all the activities
  • Increase cooperation among individuals, organisations, institutions and companies in Europe
  • Stand up for fair working conditions and make the fight against youth unemployment a priority

 

Our Team

We pride ourselves with a team of young professionals, coming from the most diverse backgrounds but with a common interest in fighting youth unemployment, who chose to devote their free-time to help others find their ways in the job market and pursuing their professional development.
