Intellectual outcomes for working with NEET youth were developed within the strategic partnership "Constellation". They include the "Research on patterns among youth in NEET situations" and the Toolkit "Constellation". Both complement each other.

Aims of the tool

The aim of "Research on patterns among youth in NEET situations" is to highlight the areas which might be the most probable risk factors, and in which young people might need support to prevent them from getting into a NEET situation.

The aim of Toolkit "Constellation" is to support young people at risk before they become inactive through fostering social inclusion of youth, especially in rural areas.

Both intellectual outcomes and support documents are available on project webpage

Description of the tool

"Research on patterns among youth in NEET situations"
Within the context of this project, a qualitative research is conducted among 60 young people who had an experience of being in a NEET situation in Latvia, Slovenia and Croatia. Results are categorized into the following six categories of patterns – living conditions, health status, relationships, education, career and work experience.

Toolkit "Constellation"
It is developed as a resource for prevention which aims at supporting young people at risk before they become inactive through fostering social inclusion of youth, especially in rural areas.
The content of the Toolkit “Constellation” is a resource for youth workers and educators to work on prevention through:
● growing self-reliance in terms of empowering them to rely on their own inner strengths and resources rather than those of others;
● increasing independence in terms of being independent as an individual who is free to make own choices;
● developing a sense of belonging in terms of working on relationships that are important to them, and which have an impact on their sense of belonging to a family, a school, a social group, a classroom, a community, etc.
