APP4Skills – APPplication aimed to provide basic skills to disadvantaged young people by developing a web application, based on three main areas of everyday life with a set of activities to contribute to the development of their knowledge and skills. The objective of the project was also to support the integration of young people with disabilities by enhancing their competences and making them suitable for the labor market.
Two types of activities were conducted during the project: a meeting of experts to develop the application and test the application among the main target group.
