(09/07/2017) in Hotel Karpos, Skopje, the Coalition of youth organizations SEGA promoted "The study needs analysis: “Social inclusion of vulnerable groups through the creation of equal opportunities for access to the labor market" as part of the project activities in order to improve social inclusion through employability enhancement "Open Door - for youth by youth". This project has included 80 people from Skopje, Bitola, Prilep, Stip, whose families are social assistance beneficiaries.

“Our starting point was the fact that 4.000 young people are social assistance beneficiaries. This is a striking number of people who never gave a thought of getting involved in the labor market. We were looking for a model similar to the expertise of the people in our area, so we decided to apply the Slovak model that gave excellent results in Slovakia from the aspect of individual support. We came to a conclusion that the institutions and the civil society must create appropriate strategies in order to help these people get employed”- stated Zoran Ilieski, Executive Director of Coalition SEGA.

The research of Coalition SEGA has shown that many young people quit their jobs right after their first work experience, because they realized their lack of working skills. That demotivated them to look for a new job.

Considering that it is a very specific target group, these young people often live in closed families that have used social assistance for a long time and as such never had the opportunity to work.

 “With this project we managed to change the awareness of these young people, so they can become well informed about the principles of working, providing not only material resources but also an opportunity for socialization and contribution to the state”, emphasized Ilieski.

 Nevertheless, 65 percent of young people from social vulnerable categories finished secondary school. Many of them are members of the Roma ethnic community.

From the research we came to a conclusion that the education plays a major role for these people to get involved in the labor market, but it is also of vital importance for them to gain suitable skills. On the other hand, the Centers for social work should contribute towards the success of these people, by motivating and working on additional psychological work, -stated Katerina Jovanovska from Coalition SEGA.

The project Fostering social inclusion through employability enhancement "Open door for youth by youth" is funded by the European Union

On 28th of June 2017 in Skopje, in hotel Holiday Inn was organized round table “Regulation of the participation of children and youth in the education legislative”. On this event was promoted the initiative for changes and amendments of the Law for secondary school education in direction of integration of the participation of the students in the decision making process in the educational process”

This event aims to provide discussion with the delegates, the Public ombudsman and the NGOs referring to the real youth participation that will be legally regulated.

“It is a fact that the condition in the R.Macedonia with the participation of the students in the schools is on a very low level, where the students has no right to raise their voice and space to express their opinion. Our request is directed to opening of a process for legal changes in the secondary school education where the students in the secondary schools will have a right to participate in the decision making processes in the schools and in all the reforms in the educational system” says the Executive director of Coalition of youth organizations SEGA, Zoran Ilieski.

The deputy Public ombudsmen Vaska Bajramoska Mustafa said that the Public ombudsmen during the realized meetings with the primary and secondary school students has concluded that the participation of the students in the decision making processes in the schools is on a very low level.

 “We implemented research in 2016 for the condition in the schools. The results were disappointing. Only in 61 secondary schools there is some kind of a school organization, but there is no participation of children in the decision making processes. The children elect presidents of their classes who they represent them in the schools, but their representation or advocacy is only because of some of the rights or questions, there is no participation of the students in the field of policy creation”, says Vaska Bajramovska Mustafa.

The conclusion from the present participants, the delegates as well as the representatives from the NGOs is the following:

The changes to be based on the basis of the Convention of the rights of the child with special focus on the right of education; there is a need of wide – range and complete analysis for the participation; the participation of the students in the decision making processes to be systematically regulated through these processes, different forms of organization, monitoring and evaluation, ways for participation and what is most important is for the students to be recognized as an important factor in these processes; there comes the need for legal regulation and strategy”.

“Unified system for inclusion”

 “The municipalities and all the other stakeholders should be included in these processes”.

 “The decentralization is important; there is a need for cognitive revolution/reform, participation of the unaffected sides”

“Ways for encouraging of young people to be actively included in these processes, essential implementation is important too, not just form”.

 “To work according to the lessons learned the politic issues to be out of these processes, the process to be open and inclusive”.

The effects will be evident soon, there is a need for the process to be transparent, with broad involvement, and the process of building capacities of the stakeholders to continue, the process to be continuant and systematic”.

The participation of the students in the decision making processes to be legally guaranteed on a very high level”.

This event is organized by Coalition of youth organizations SEGA, in partnership with the Youth Educational Forum and the First children’s embassy in the world Megjashi”, as part of the activities of the project “Implementation of the Convention on the rights of the child” supported by the Children Foundation Pestalozzi.
