Youth Achieve Program

Youth Achieve program of Junior Achievement Greece is part of the ACE (All Children in Education) programme. The programme “All Children in Education” is a UNICEF initiative in collaboration with the Ministry of Migration and Asylum, implemented in collaboration with a number of partners, with co-funding from the European Union.

Youth Achieve includes several online educational tools that aim to prepare the underage refugee hosts of the accommodation centers for the labor market and education in Greece, as well as the relevant culture regarding work, education, and professional orientation. 

For this purpose, we have created three informative and educational videos and this website, which includes useful information about work, education, culture, and professional orientation in Greece for our young friends. 

The whole material is carefully designed to provide all the necessary information for the young refugees and the professionals who support them, in a comprehensive and entertaining way.
