Strategic Partnership Youth@Work

Strategic Partnership Youth@Work

The Strategic Partnership Youth@Work aims to create synergies between different activities and support measures organised in the areas of youth employability and entrepreneurship in the context of the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth and European Solidarity Corps.

A consortium of eleven Erasmus+ National Agencies in the field of youth and four SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres are part of the Strategic Partnership Youth@Work.

The objectives of Youth@Work are to:

  • provide visibility to and enhance the role of youth work in the youth employability and entrepreneurship ecosystems;
  • support the contribution of the Erasmus+ Programme to the implementation of the European Youth Strategy and of other European youth employability and entrepreneurship-related policies;
  • strengthen the cooperation and synergies between local, regional, national and European initiatives on youth employability and entrepreneurship, and support peer learning;
  • increase the development of sustainable partnerships, good practices, quality projects and foster innovation;
  • create space and opportunities for different stakeholders to cooperate and learn from each other;
  • reinforce the contribution of youth work and of the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth in particular to competences’ acquisition and recognition among our target groups;
  • enhance the understanding and advance the use of EntreComp, DigComp and other European competence frameworks to be developed by the European Commission, as well as of Youthpass.
  • introduce new initiatives, whilst building on and continuing previous projects organised by the partners on youth employability and entrepreneurship.

SALTO SEE supports people and organisations active in this area in the Western Balkan Partner Countries by providing them opportunities to take part in the support activities within the Youth@Work Partnership. We also foresee to establish a regional consultative group in spring 2019 onwards, which will function as an advisory body for us, with the focus on how the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth and European Solidarity Corps can be used as an instrument to foster youth employability and entrepreneurship in the Western Balkan Partner Countries and reinforce networking and exchange of practices in the European level. The call for expressions of interest in taking part of the regional consultative group was closed in 18 April.

More information about the Strategic Partnership Youth@Work in the European level is in its Facebook page and Youtube channel. The website is under development. The support activities open for the Western Balkan Partner Countries are listed among all of our support activities here.
