Bridges to Work Partners

Bridges to Work is the fruit of the cooperation between many partners. They made the necessary connections to employment initiatives throughout Europe. We would like to thank them for their support.

Bridges to Work takes place in synergy with the Antwerp European Youth Capital 2011, giving mutual visibility and support to our activities.

Many brains have more ideas than one

The SALTO Inclusion Resource Centre (coordinator Bridges to Work) organised two reflection days and a series of meetings with relevant stakeholders to gather valuable input for Bridges to Work.
