SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 19. (EUROPE PRESS) –
Starting next May, Tenerife will host the EmpleArte project, with which specialized advice and support will be offered to long-term unemployed young people who want to access the labor market. The project, promoted and managed by the Santa María la Real Foundation, is co-financed by the European Social Fund and the Cabildo de Tenerife, through the Fifede Foundation.
EmpleArte is intended for long-term unemployed men and women, aged between 18 and 35, both inclusive. They may have any level of education (ESO, Baccalaureate, Vocational Training, university degrees, etc.) and come from any labor sector, with or without previous experience.
The participants will have the advice of specialists from the Santa María la Real Foundation for three months to promote a comprehensive job search plan in the current labor market. They will attend three days a week, in the morning, virtual meetings to develop job orientation activities that allow them to reactivate their job search strategy, strengthen their transversal skills and digital skills, improve their positioning and promote their insertion.
In the first phase of this project, developed last year, the Foundation carried out social research on the psychosocial effects produced by long-term unemployment. With the results obtained, it has designed new social intervention methodologies, attending to the needs detected, and using creative processes from different artistic disciplines (dance, music, theater, circus and clown, painting, creative writing, photography and video, etc.) to motivate these people, promote their personal growth and empowerment, and from there propose a new job search strategy, adapted to the current labor market.
“The program will not only help them to get to know the current market, but also and especially to get to know themselves better, identify their strengths and focus them in their job search. Creative circus and clown techniques, as well as emotional management and tailor-made job guidance will help them actively and proactively reactivate their job search, reinforce their transversal skills and their digital skills to set their course and future employment”, they explain from the Foundation.
This year, EmpleArte will develop two projects on the Island to improve the employability of people up to 35 years of age. The first project will be carried out between May and July, while the second will be carried out in the second half of the year.
In addition to Tenerife, the project will be developed in five other locations in Spain, such as Albacete, Bilbao, Cáceres, Fuenlabrada and Pontevedra.
