Youth@Work: Reinforcing the Youth Guarantee - time to increase the impact of the Youth Sector


13-14 December 2022 | online , Cyprus

Youth@Work is the link between NGOs and government-led youth initiatives, and it can offer the channel to promote and engage youth actors into national actions on EU Youth Guarantee.


The youth sector is already delivering on the main challenges identified by the EU Youth Guarantee i.e. to reconnect youth with the education, employment and training pathways, to reduce social exclusion and increase life chances.  However, they are not widely involved in the EU Youth Guarantee initiatives funded at national level.  Their knowledge and practical expertise of youth engagement and empowerment can support a stronger delivery of the EU Youth Guarantee initiatives, and build on the commitment to explore more innovative approaches to combating the ongoing challenges of social and economic exclusion that are increased when young people are not in education, employment and training. This seminar is about identifying the opportunities and challenges towards close involvement of the youth sector into EU Youth Guarantee initiatives.

Youth@Work is the link between NGOs and government-led youth initiatives, and it can offer the channel to promote and engage youth actors into national actions on EU Youth Guarantee.
