Centre for Youth Work jointly with Foundation Ana and Vlade Divac and Belgrade Centre for Human Rights, in response to the need for national dialog on improving the quality of support of NEET youth is organising the “NEETworking” platform on December 15th 2020 from 10 AM to 1:30 PM.
Research has shown that NEET youth – the youth not in employment, not in education or not in training – should be recognised as a separate social group facing more difficulty when it comes to employment. The goal of the national dialog is improving the support system for NEET youth through public policies, improving cross-sectoral cooperation and innovative work models.
A national dialogue provides an opportunity for sharing experiences between civil society organisations, the business sector, national institutions and line ministries on the difficulties NEET youth in Serbia face, examples of good practice, and adapting the approach to work to the changes that the COVID-19 pandemic brings about.
E. Mr. Sem Fabrizi, Ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia and the representatives of the Government of the Republic of Serbia will open the conference.
All interested parties are invited to participate in the National Conference, and contribute to the dialogue on the quality of support to NEET youth. To register, please fill out this form, and choose one of the workgroups to participate in. applications are open until December 13th 2020, and the link will late be provided.
