Youth unemployment is a major issue all over Europe. Especially young Deaf looking for a job or career training have to deal with large barriers on their way. S4H aims to improve the opportunities for Deaf young people in the labour market.
S4H focuses on companies, organisations and Deaf young people. We portray Deaf role models and companies with Deaf employees. Young people share tips and tricks for successful communication in the workplace and important signs for everyday working life. We develop workshops for companies and provide an overview of relevant service centres for labour market integration.
SIGNS FOR HANDSHAKES was a 2 year European project implemented from 2015 – 2017 with partners from Austria, Bulgaria, Slovenia and United Kingdom.
