Empowering Youth Individuals with fewer opportunities towards citizenship
EU-funding mechanism: Erasmus+ 2021 KA220-YOUTH
E-YOUTH aims to develop a cross-sectoral (health, social services, social environment, families, community mainstream services, NGOs…) and community-based intervention methodology for youth individuals with a disability based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and also trying to focus on upskill & reskill and enhance the competences of young workers or young professionals in the sector.
- Promote social inclusion of young persons with disabilities with complex needs and with fewer opportunities (NEETs) to ensure their Human Rights are respected.
- Contribute upon identity building and citizenship of persons at risk of exclusion by developing concrete actions to implement the European Pillar of Social Rights.
- Design and create a cross-sectoral and coproduced intervention methodology between health, social services and third sector organisations to develop community-based services.
- Upskill and reskill current professionals in the disability sector by mapping their current competences and developing evidence-based and rights-driven training packages.
- Develop resources to promote personal development, autonomy and resilience of young persons with complex needs and fewer opportunities to promote pathways of engagement with the system,
