Inclusion of Young People: EU policies & WISEs contribution

28-09-2020

On the 1st July 2020, the European Commission presented the “Youth Employment Support: a Bridge to Jobs for the Next Generation” package which aims to support young people who are entering the labour market. Its initiatives build on the Commission's ambitious recovery plan which provide numerous and significant EU financing opportunities for youth employment so that all Member States can invest in young people.

WISEs have an important role in the inclusion of the youth through work. Among their target groups we find young people and above all NEETs (Not in Education, Employment, or Training), they develop specific programs and opportunities for them. In this regard, they are concerned by the latest EU policy developments on the subject and should be considered as essential actors in this sector.

The Youth Employment Support package is built around four strands that together provide a bridge to jobs for the next generation:

  • a reinforced Youth Guarantee

  • a future-proof vocational education and training

  • a renewed impetus for apprenticeships

  • a number of additional measures to support youth employment.

This webinar allowed to better understand the current challenges young people face as well as the available EU policies and tools in what concerns the inclusion and support of young people. This session tried to present the role of civil society organisations and WISEs in the inclusion of young people, their challenges, recommendations and claims!
