Problem statement:

More than one third of senior university students and over 40% of graduated students, do not know what job they will be doing when turning 30. Alongside, there are only 420 psychologists working in Moldovan schools, for a total number of 332,700 of school students.

Innovative approach:

Both problem and solution emerged as a result of an extensive crowdsourcing campaign: students, parents and teachers, from all over the country, were asked to express their ideas online, by answering the question: “How can schools develop useful life skills?”
CarieraMea is a project designed through co-creation: born out of the ideas of youngster, developed and tested with their help.

Innovations for change outcomes:

  • Online career orientation guide and video testimonials from professionals: available for every school student in Moldova and beyond.
  • Offline events organized twice a month, study visits and workshops.

National ownership:

ARTICO youth center has taken over the maintenance and has committed resources and people to further developing the features of the portal and to coordinate the work in the field of career guidance with other partners. Access the platform on
