DIP on the projects from the area of NEET groups – financed from the EU funds:
Youth centers fit for NEET, DIP is an expert collaborator on the ERASMS+ KA2 project, strategic partnerships for youth
- The project “Information centers for young people suitable for NEET” was co-financed from the Erasmus+ program of the European Union, Key action 2 through the National Agency for European Educational Programs and Mobility, and was implemented by the Coalition of Youth Organizations SEGA from North Macedonia, the Regional Info Center for Youth Rijeka from Croatia and Stowarzyszenie Edukacja przez Internet from Poland. The goal of the project is to work on an innovative approach in identifying role models for informing young people about the needs of people in the NEET situation. Prevention should be a priority in order to avoid an increase in the number of young people entering the NEET situation and to break the intergenerational cycle of social exclusion. A proactive approach is needed by youth organizations to ensure early intervention, so as to avoid young people ending up in a NEET situation. By strengthening the capacity of youth organizations, youth work and other forms of inclusion, we will ensure the use of their potential to encourage the social inclusion of young people in the NEET situation. Promote and increase the availability of professional counseling and guidance adapted to the needs of socially excluded youth in all phases of their lives. Through TOT, young workers will be introduced to a new approach to informing young NEETs. Through the project, an online tool for young people was created.
- The role of the DIP was to conduct research on young people in the NEET situation, to analyze the normative framework of public policies for young people in this area, and to prepare the results of the research for the final conference for young people in Rijeka.
