Objective of the project

To enhance the socio-economic integration and inclusion of NEETs

Context analysis

According to Eurostat 2016 data, Italy has the highest number of young people aged 15-29 years old not in education, employment or training (NEET) in the European Union. NEETs face serious risks of being socio-economically excluded and marginalized as they are not part of the education system or the job market. In addition, at the macro-economic level NEETs represents a cost for the welfare system of a country as they are often dependent on subsidies and other supporting measures. The NEET group is composed of people with different backgrounds and personal stories ranging from long-term unemployed to younger people facing challenges just entering the labour market. Finally, a large number of NEETs comes from marginalized areas with lack or limited availability of services, lower economic and development indicators, and higher unemployment rates.

ActionAid is currently implementing two Teamwork projects: one in Milan and one in Bari and Reggio Calabria.

Milan, MI, Italia

The project is implemented in Milan (Lombardy Region).
