24th – 31th August

Social Entrepreneurship for Social Change

To equip young people with necessary competencies and tools in order to become the engines of social change

DEADLINE: 12th July

about the project

The youth unemployement issue

The sources

Youth are in danger of becoming the “educated unemployed’ and joining the so-called NEETs (not in employment, education or training)

Other risk factors

They can be even more marginalized if their gender, ethnicity, social status, disability or geographic location isolates them from the mainstream

The outcome

A young person without work for prolonged periods will struggle to recover: Experts warn of their long-term lost income, increased dependency on benefit payments and their wasted potential
