YES, U2 - Engage NEET with community

Training Course

5-11 October 2021 | Durbuy, Belgium - FR

Are you in a position of responsibility to engage NEET youth within communities? NEET’s are identified with what they are “Not” . Instead, we will use hopeful future approach to develop practical strategies on how to connect NEET's with community.

➔ Do you care about including NEET youth with your local community?

Topic : Innovative youth work approaches to engage NEET youth with local community

Aim : To build capacity and competences of people working with youth in order to engage NEET youth with local community.

This training course specially focuses on innovative learning approaches and developing competences in order to create safe and comprehensive spaces, supporting young people’s sense of belonging to society and empowering them to take an active role in the local community.
