JOB R-EVOLVE

About the project

‘Job R-Evolve’ is a two-part training course on employability and entrepreneurship for youth workers and youth leaders.


Job R-Evolve is a symbolic play of words - ''revolve'' and ''evolve'' with an emphasis on a positive transformation and growth.


The project consists of two parts and aims to equip youth workers and youth leaders working directly with young people and particularly in deprived rural and urban areas with essential business and entrepreneurial competences and support them to contribute to tackle the problem of unemployment among youth through promoting local initiatives, self-employment and entrepreneurial culture.


During the first part of the project the youth workers will be sharing the best practices of successful countries on youth employment, discovering job opportunity platforms accessible for the EU countries, receiving input from trainers. The group discussions will lead to a creation of a contemporary method that will be used by participants to empower young job seekers for finding jobs in their local communities.


The second part of the project will approach entrepreneurship from a practice-based perspective. In this way, the participants will be involved in a set of empirical entrepreneurial activities. The training will provide the methods for inspiring the potential entrepreneurs, encouraging them to set up new enterprises and be capable and eager entrepreneurs.


The project will contribute to developing youth workers’ competences in employability of young people and entrepreneurship in general, as our primal goal constitutes the synthesis of innovative and practical entrepreneurial ideas on how to motivate young people to be active.

How to get there

The closest airport is the International Airport “Mother Theresa“ (in Tirana) that is only 40 km far from the Hotel “Bonita” and 14 km from Durres. But, the place is reachable even if you arrive by car/bus from north or south of Albania. From the “Mother Teresa” airport, there is a Shuttle bus to Durres city that stops in Durres Train Station. You can buy the bus ticket in the bus for 2500 lek or 2.5 euro.


As you stop in Durres city, you have to take another bus “Durres - Golem line (white color bus). They are coming every 30 minutes in summer.


There are 3 or 4 stops from the Durres Train Station Stop to arrive to “Kompleks BONITA” in Golem. The bust stop is in front of the Hotel. From there Hotel “Bonita” is just on the right side of the Bus stop.


It would be better to have the name of the Hotel and its telephone numbers printed in a piece of paper and to show it to the driver or the local passengers. As people are very friendly in Albania, this little preparation will help you a lot.


For those participants coming to Durres by Bus from Macedonia or Greece, please let the driver know about the hotel and kindly ask him to stop you at “Kompleks BONITA” in Golem.
