After the Facebook fanpage, EvolYou is now online also with this website, an important tool to share the development of the project with the whole VET and volunteering community.
EvolYou “European senior Volunteering through mentoring for the social inclusion of Young people in difficulties” is a forward-looking project funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme, focused on improving the level of key competences and skills, with particular regard to their relevance for labour market and their contribution to a cohesive society, mainly through strengthened cooperation between the world of education and training and the world of work.
Specifically, it aims to intervene on the marginalisation and social exclusion phenomena, favoring active inclusion of disadvantaged young people aged 15-30 into labour market and consequently in society. This objective is achieved through a training path of participated involvement of senior expert volunteers in an intergenerational mentoring environment. The path contributes to upskill youngsters and bring them closer to work introduction systems, sharpening their soft and employability skills, so countering their conditions of fragility and disadvantage; furthermore it helps to develop the contribution of senior population to society.
We will publish here the main outputs of the project and its steps on the go.
So… stay tuned!
