YES: Youth Engagement in Society


This project aims to increase NEETs’ Social Inclusion and promote Active Citizenship, by developing key competencies in Youth NEET and train youth workers to address better to NEETs’ needs, namely: the need to break the cycle of isolation/social exclusion; lack of motivation to become an active citizen; lack of self-awareness of their passions/talents and, even, the low self-esteem and lack of key skills that are required to take an initiative and build an action plan to concretize it.

Therefore, the objectives of the project are:

– To create and test an innovative LEARNING PROGRAM for NEET Youth to develop key social and personal competencies that will allow them to become active citizens and increase their social inclusion;

– To motivate NEET Youth to engage and discover their passions/talents;

– To increase NEET Youth’s awareness of some key societal challenges;

– To empower NEET Youth with key-skills to materialize their goals in a creative and organised way;

– To foster the NEET Youth’s Connection to the local/global community through the creation of concrete volunteering action projects to approach societal challenges;

– To promote the exchange of good practices among partners from 5 countries (PT, CY, RO, UK and SE), strengthening cross-cooperation and a multidisciplinary approach;

– To invest in the capacity building of youth workers competences promoting high-quality work and innovative methods of reaching out to NEET Youth;

– To contribute to the sense of belonging, as European Citizens and motivate participants to learn more about the EU, creating a European Network;
