The project will promote the empowerment, participation and the active citizenship of young people NEET by using an effective model of engagement, to ensure they have the life skills and knowledge to access training or employment, making informed choices, and enabling them to overcome barriers to participation.

By taking part in the programme, participants will experience the following benefits:

  • Reduction of negative and anti-social behaviour patterns.
  • Improved civic participation amongst our target beneficiaries and increased awareness of social responsibilities.
  • Increased access to training and employment and inclusion.
  • They will have wider perspectives on topics as EU values, active citizenship and participation in democratic life.
