International Projects

Beyond Neet (D)

Factor Social is finishing the first phase of the project BEYOND NEET(D)s. The project started in October 2020, with the purpose of creating an Integrated system for guidance and support for vocational education pathways for highly disadvantaged youth beyond the status of NEET (unavailable or disengaged persons who are not in employment, education, or training or even below this status). The primary objectives are to offer opportunities, jobs and training in order to increase this subgroup’s engagement in society and therefore, decrease its rate.

The most important goal of this project is to open job offers to this subgroup and to increase trust and motivation of NEETs to enter the job market. The final products of Beyond NEET(D)s will be easily accessible, transferable and applicable in the existing practices in the global market.

Beyond NEET(D) is a multidimensional partnership involving seven organizations, from Austria (Jugend am Werk Steiermark GmbH; and ENTER GMBH), Cyprus (Centro CSI para Inovação Social Ltda), Czech Republic (Aklub Centrum Vzdelavani a Poradenstvi), Ireland (Meath Community Rural and Social Development Partnership Limited), Italy (CO & SO- Consorzio per la Cooperazione e la Solidarieta'-Consorzio di Cooperative Socialisocieta 'Cooperattiva Sociale), and Portugal (Factor Social - Consultoria em Psicossociologia e Ambiente Lda). All of these have a vast experience working with disadvantaged young people and vulnerable NEETs and share the goal of making an integrated approach to the issue.
