b) Development of the Job shadowing

Three youth workers selected by each partner organisation will carry out a 14-days job shadowing experience in one of the partner countries, hosted by an organisation/enterprise selected by the hosting partner. It will allow youth workers to acquire knowledge, skills and competences about the project topics thanks to the involvement on daily work activities of the hosting organisation, which will belong to rural development/cultural heritage defence/ ICTs sectors.
