EU4Youth Awards

Romeo Malazonia

  • Submitted by: Giovanni
  • Description: Lacking confidence and skills for the job market was holding 21-year-old Romeo back. After participating in the EU4Youth training sessions, Romeo gained the necessary skills and confidence to start applying. Now he enjoys multiple responsibilities: a sales and statistics manager, PR and event manager, as well as the head of student parliament of the Civil Integration Committee for the Protection of Human Rights in Georgia. Romeo continues his participation in the EU4Youth activities and supports others, who are struggling with same problems he once had.

The EU4Youth Award winners were selected among the beneficiaries of the five EU-funded EU4Youth projects, which have been supporting youth in Armenia, Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine during 2018-2020. These are 15 outstanding young people who have been selected to receive the EU4Youth Awards, out of a total of 18,000 beneficiaries since the EU4Youth programme was launched in 2018. More information about all EU-funded initiatives for youth in the Eastern Partnership region is available here:

The special awards will be provided by EY, which implements EU4Youth Coordination and Support project. The EU4Youth programme’s purpose is aligned with EY’s commitment to support the next generation workforce and to positively impact the lives of one billion people by 2030.
