By uniting partners from different sectors NGOs, educational experts, companies from Bulgaria, Lithuania, Portugal, Slovenia, Italy, who have a proven track record of working for the social and labor market inclusion of young people from highly marginalized minorities, the project aims at:
• Testing the educational model in different contexts and with different target groups, whose marginalization, based on intersectionality makes their access to the labor market very difficult;
• Applying a social impact assessment tool that will produce comparative data, which will demonstrate the impact of the methodology on the trainees as well as on their close environment (extended family, peer group, etc.) and on the employers.
As a result, the program is expected to contribute to reducing youth unemployment, as well as integrating young people from vulnerable groups into the labor market, making a career in one of the most competitive and fast-growing sectors, namely the IT industry.
Evaluation and upgrading of the model will take place on annual basis, and the final evaluation will be based on the following key indicators:
• More than 50% of the trainees have received placements;
• 100% of the trainees have reported changes in behavior/self-assessment;
• 75% of the employers of the trainees have reported changes in their perception of the employability of NEET youth from highly marginalized minorities, which ensures sustainability of the results.
