New ways of catching up with young people in NEET situation


5-26 May 2021 | Online, Estonia

This online training course aims to equip participants with tools and practical, hands-on approaches to support reaching out to young people in NEET (not in employment, education, or training) situation in online environments.

How difficult is it to reach out to young people in a NEET situation?

And now, in times of COVID-19, the distance seems even further away!

With this course we want to look at possible new ways to create new paths towards reaching out and making contact with young people in NEET situation, focusing on online environments. It will not be a lecture or a “passing-receiving” moment. It will not be a MOOC. It will be an active and interactive discovery, based on sharing experiences and good practices from each other towards each other.

Therefore, the main aims of the training course are:

  • To understand the challenges of youth workers working with young people in NEET situation in the current crises from the perspective of different European countries;
  • To discover the possibilities of digital tools and put them into practice to overcome the obstacles in working with young people in NEET situation; 
  • To encourage a more strategic approach to working with young people in NEET situation by identifying and cooperating with key partners;
  • To share good practice examples and learn from experts; 
  • To explore international youth work opportunities for working with the target group.

Target group:

It is important to call out that we aim for participants who are working (or are willing to work) with the target group of young people in a NEET situation and do have the aim to put the gained experience and knowledge into action (on a national or international level). This can be on a professional or volunteer basis as long as it brings benefits to the target group.

Time frame:

  • I part of the training course takes place from 5th till 7th of May;
  • II part of the training course takes place from 25th till 26th of May.

An important part of this course will be about working individually or in smaller groups, in between and outside the scheduled meeting times when we will meet online with all participants. 

Besides, participants have a longer, 2-week implementation process for working directly on their individual (or in smaller groups) action plan on how to reach out to the target group and furthermore, allows to put the knowledge learned from the training course into practice. See the draft programme for more information.
