Experts concluded that it is important to recognize needs of young people, include them in the education programs and prevent their risk of poverty, homelessness and social exclusion. Through the panel, CERANEO presented our efforts in working with young people with special emphasis on the current project “And where are you?” Reactivation and reintegration of inactive young people in NEET status”. The aim of the project is to enable access and active participation in the labor market for young people in NEET status, and is especially aimed at young people in the homeless status.
Project is co-financed by the European Union through the European Social Fund.
