Project description: 7.8% of the NEETs are totally inactive people, i. e. are not interested in either education or training or in employment. The project intends to provide opportunities for youth workers from 6 European countries to share and learn from each other’s experience and settings in a non-formal way. The NEETs phenomenon is a problem at European level and only joint efforts could help find working solutions. The project is meant as an exchange of good practices and innovative idea and their integration in the organizations and countries where such approaches have not been applied before. On the other hand, the project concept focuses on international cooperation in terms of increasing the European dimension of youth work at local level which is to be achieved by working with peers from other EU countries.
- To enhance the capacity of rural youth workers to support NEETs and get them involved in local community life, the training system and/or the labour market. To equip youth workers with innovative approaches to enhance inclusion of NEETs and disadvantaged youth by exchanging good practices and innovative approaches within a partnership of organizations from 6 EU countries;
- To provide non-formal learning opportunities for 14 people active in youth work from rural areas thus improving their key competences and skills - use of ICTs and foreign languages - and their abilities to reach both NEETs and stakeholders;
- To foster quality improvements in the youth work of the participating organizations and their communities through integration into practice of the exchanged methods, approaches and good practices.
