The International Training Course "Ready, Steady=JOB" was successfully delivered in Krusevo, Macedonia by the international team of trainers from October 8-15, 2012. The TC Ready, Steady=JOB offered an excellent learning opportunity to 27 youth leaders/youth workers who deal with groups that are affected by unemployment and wish to transfer the knowledge or would like to bring along affected young people. As the work of these leaders and youth workers is particularly challenged by the problems they are facing nowadays, they are constantly seeking for new tools, methods and techniques to work with these youngsters.
