Youth@Work – Greece

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Young people have been hardest hit by the economic crisis as they often lack the experience and skills to be competitive. Today one in five young Europeans cannot find a job. However the Youth@Work action aims at showing that thanks to their fresh take on the world young people often have innovative ideas and energy.
With 32 % of youth unemployment Greece has one of the highest rates in the European Union. However, according to a European study, Greeks are the most likely to prefer to be self-employed rather than an employee. Orestis Matsoukas, 28, shares this opinion. Recently he built an SME called Orama Group which helps young companies to develop themselves. Nowadays he has a job that he likes and feels blossomed because he has created something on his own.
