Skills for the Future is Hyundai Motor Europe’s first pan-European programme, launched in 2012 and run in partnership with JA-Europe, aiming to improve youth employability. During the 3-year initiative, 10,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 18 in 15 European countries will have the opportunity to try their hands at enterprise, learn valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills and apply their knowledge in new ways. Skills development tailored to young people is essential in providing employment opportunities. At a time when youth unemployment in Europe is at an all-time high, the aim is to increase automotive sector awareness amongst students in vocational schools, to underline the importance of scientific and technical skills for future job opportunities and to help schools to prepare young people for their future careers. With support from their teachers, students will be exposed to a variety of learning-by-doing approaches and work with Hyundai business volunteers from all over Europe. Over 400 employees from the business community will volunteer.
