Exploring new methods for activation and employment of inactive young people.
The second innovation, included in the project, is consistent with the suggestions in terms of Youth Guarantee. The Youth Guarantee covers all non-working, not in education or training young people (NEET). However, this group of young people is not heterogeneous and it can be divided into two large categories:
-unemployed people who are not working anywhere, are not in education or training and are actively looking for a job.
-inactive young people who are neither working, nor in education or training, who are also not looking for work.
The activity includes exploring and studying methods for introducing useful skills, necessary for the active participation of inactive young people in the labor market. This system is applied by the partner “Polish Council of Youth Organizations” (PROM). Poland, unlike countries from Central and Southeastern Europe, has achieved great success in terms of integrating young unemployed people into the labor market. Within the activity will be completed the first stage of the introduction of the social innovation. It includes examination of good practices and models for reaching vulnerable young people, including those with low qualification, the unregistered and unemployed and the ones who are neither working nor in education. The activity includes analysis on the effective Polish approach to reaching inactive young people who are faced with multiple challenges and need extensive and individual interventions.
