Aims & objectives

The project has a focus on the prevention of dropout and the empowerment of endangered young people. We have designed a training where youth workers get the methods and tools to tackle the problem of early school leaving with competence development, study visits, and sharing good practices. During the training course they will discover and understand the main motives and problems behind early school leaving, meet and share good practices, and develop new methods together as well.
