The project will empower 85 young adults between 18-23 years old with a refugee or asylum seekers' status, living in the broader area of Athens, to cultivate the necessary competencies for a successful transition to adulthood, setting the basis for their social empowerment and economic self-reliance. 

Particular emphasis will be placed on supporting unaccompanied children who recently turned 18 and are in need of immediate accommodation and employment. 

There will be 3 cohorts in total, each of which will last for 3 months, meaning that the participants will receive services at an intensive pace for three months. IRC Hellas proposes a holistic approach to the provision of a well-rounded package of in-house, as well as mobile services that include:

  • psychosocial support
  • employment and job placement support
  • assistance in navigating the housing market and administrative processes
  • as well as access to vocational training opportunities in high-absorption sectors.
