Conference: "On track - Different youth work approaches for different NEET situations"


13-16 April 2016 | Bratislava, Slovak Republic

A mini, 2,5 days, cross-sectoral conference addressing NEET issues and showcasing good practices, with the emphasize on cooperation between youth work and other sectors (formal education, employment, social & business sector...).
Theme: Young People in a NEET ((Not in Education Employment or Training) situation Some young people fall out of the boat for different reasons. They are not in education, not in training and don’t have a job either. They have disappeared from the system e.g. school dropouts, unemployed that are thrown from the dole, homeless youngsters, who don’t find their way to services or help, people living in illegal situations, people alienated from society,... (So we are not talking about those who choose to do something else e.g. gap year, voluntary service, world travel). Conference "On Track" is part of the SALTO Inclusion a longer-term strategic approach to reach these disenfranchised young people who are excluded from the system and see how we can reconnect them to society and improve their opportunities in life. The SALTO Inclusion research & publication on NEET issues "On track - Different youth work approaches for different NEET situations" will be published in December 2015. The conference "On Track" will serve as a platform for dissemination and exploitation of the results of this study. General aim: To promote sustainable cooperation between professionals from different sectors in order to create better opportunities for young people in a NEET situation to enable their active involvement in society and integration into the labour market.
