Working with young people in NEET situation
The main objectives of the Study Visit
• To explore the diverse field in the work with young people in NEET situation in Latvia
• To exchange and reflect with professionals from different countries on approaches, methods, tools in their work with young people in NEET situations
• To understand how Erasmus + Youth in Action / European Solidarity Corps (ESC) can be used to include young people in NEET situations
• To develop partnerships to implement future Erasmus+ / ESC projects both on international and national level
During this Study Visit (SV) we will explore how organizations in Latvia work with young people in NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) situation and which strategies of prevention and support are offered on administrative level (e.g. in the framework of the Youth Guarantee).
Youth workers, social workers but also interested people on administrative level from different countries will explore the diverse field in Latvia in the work with young people in NEET situation. The participants together with a facilitator and staff from the National Agency will travel to Tukums, Jurmala and Jelgava and will get to know different organizations and approaches working with young mothers, young people with addictions and detached youth work . Besides that, there will be time for exchange and reflection.
During the Study Visit we will also have a look at European Mobility Programmes (Erasmus+ Youth in Action, European Solidarity Corps) and explore whether those programmes could be a tool to foster the inclusion of young people in NEET situation or even support them to overcome their situations. There will also be an opportunity to find international partners with the aim to establish long term cooperation for projects.
