The project partners will make apprenticeships and training opportunities that are better suited to the specific needs of young people who fall outside the ordinary education systems. They will train the youngsters in social enterprises, which are businesses that are more concerned with social changes than with making a profit. The model used is called WISE (Work Integration Social Enterprise), which includes a set of guidance tools. The project will also work together with local institutions and private companies which will offer internships.

Target groups:

  • Young people not in employment, education or training, aged 24-29
  • Young people with disabilities
  • Roma
  • Migrants
  • The low-skilled
  • Drop-outs
  • Teachers and mentors
  • Local stakeholder committees (LSCs)
