The presentation was focused on:
- Giving a short introduction on the project, project aims and objectives,

Envina Zavalani, Project coordinator gave a summary of the project and introduced the three main courses that the project will develop - graphic design, web design and digital marketing. She also introduced the freelancer concept and the idea behind the Career Guidance course.
Albert Greca, project assistant offered a detailed presentation on the project website: www.youthonlinework.com, the contents and the tools that this website offers, like online courses, thematic articles, other useful information, the possibility to create a freelancer profile within the webpage and a space for potential employers to find skilled young people.
Ajne Muja, course instructor, gave a short overview on the graphic design course that will be carried out by her, planned to be implemented first within the project timeframe.
Considering that one of the main pillars of the project involves introducing the freelancer concept, part of the presentation was focused on offering an overview of the freelancer work especially in the field of ICT. Consequently a summary was presented on how this is related to the project and how the career guidance course will support the upgrade of their skills in creating confidence and content for their portfolio to facilitate their integration in the labor market.
Young participants were very interested in the latter and raised many questions that were duly answered by the project team.
