Inclusion through Solidarity

Training Course

13-21 July 2022 | Bucharest, Romania

Inclusion through Solidarity aims to provide a 'safe space' for learning about inclusion of NEETs through Erasmus Plus and European Solidarity Corps projects.

Currently, 14.2% of the EU population aged 15-29 is in NEET category and figures are expected to rise in the EU and EaP region. European Solidarity Corps aims to promote social inclusion by facilitating access to opportunities for young people with fewer opportunities.

Over 5200 world-wide NGOs were actively involved in ESC; hence, our overall involvement in the social issues combined with the organizational capacities of all entities can provide an answer to the economic crisis generated by the spread of Coronavirus and help protect the socially excluded/in risk of social exclusion youngsters (NEETs), by providing effective engagement alternatives to traditional employment.

Yet, there is still an abundance of complaints in regards to the quality of ESC projects. The  complaints come from volunteers, ex-volunteers, coordinating, hosting and sending organizations, and it focus on several aspects: from having activities unfit to the project, to the mismanagement of the budget, lack of resources to live in the hosting country, hosting associations complaining  about the preparation of the volunteers, confusion about the support staff, abandonment of the volunteers when they return to their country, shortcomings in regard of the learning objectives and much more.

Thus, due to the current situation, Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programs potential when combined, and our specific expertise, we will generate a capacity-sharing space and build quality standards of international volunteering projects as an efficient response to the unemployment crisis. Hence, during 9 days mobility and throughout the project period, we intend to:

1. Empower 29 youth workers in managing quality ESC projects by exchanging experiences and good practices, good management of the project, inclusion strategies, analyzing characteristics and jointly finding solutions.

2. Develop a common understanding for 29 participants on how to properly design an ESC projects with focus on quality, based on the inclusion needs of NEET youth;

3. Improve the organizational capacity of 9 NGOs for developing inclusion projects, by promoting ESC program as a solution to youth unemployment.

4. Build stronger synergies and lasting partnerships among 9 NGOs from EU and EaP and develop future projects, share specific results, good practices and successful strategies used among NGOs in the EU and the region EaP.
