The project partners from Romania, Bulgaria, Italy and Spain will reach out to young people that are not enrolled in education, do not have a job and do not take part in society. They will support and train them in small family businesses, so they can be motivated to create their own jobs in the local community. The project partners will use their own experiences at the local level and a methodological approach to business developed by the Junior Achievement across Europe.

Target groups:

  • The hard-to-reach
  • The low-skilled
  • The long-term unemployed
  • National authorities
  • The Junior Achievement network in 35 countries
