The aim of the DUDE – Do Unlimited extenD compEtence project is to help young people who are in the risk of becoming marginalized to become employed. Our main goal is to help the DUDE participants to move on to the job market. We will achieve this by offering them relevant tasks in their field of study or expertise. The participants will gain new knowledge and practical skills in their own field of interest and build networks with the local business.

As the working life renews itself constantly and there is increased demand for multidisciplinary skills, we will consider the need for DUDE participants to be able to apply and adjust their knowledge into different fields that need workforce. We will offer the participants a wide view on the job market and information on how they can apply their skills in it at the present and in the future. By taking these actions the participants will develop their skills to be better suited to the needs of the local business and increase their chance to become employed in our region.

The young participants will be supported by work and life coaches during their DUDE term.
