Team Up for NEETs - Innovation for Youth Employability
Date du début: 1 oct. 2015, Date de fin: 30 sept. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

“Team Up for NEETS – Innovation for Youth Employability” fosters synergies between innovative approaches to non-formal education, sport-based youth work and employment training for NEET young people. The project establishes trans-European cooperation amongst key-organisations from eastern, western, northern and southern parts of the EU. Together, they will build the capacity to act as European knowledge hubs and set high quality standards in the field of attractive youth work and NEET employability initiatives. In order to establish the necessary basis for dissemination, “Team Up” will create a user-friendly European toolkit as a modular solution to transfer impact-measured, successful practices to wider audiences. In addition, the development of a shared Monitoring and Performance Measurement Framework will track social impact and help assess the collective and individual organisations’ progress against key indicators. The systemic approach to disseminating successful innovative practices of quality youth work at organisational, local, regional, national and European level facilitates cross border cooperation amongst coaches, trainers and social workers. These actors, in turn, will help to engage over 60.000 of the 'hardest-to-reach' young Europeans in structured youth and non-formal education programmes, with the goal of getting them back into employment or training. streetfootballworld works with a consortium of project partners from the UK, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Portugal and Spain to unite leaders in the field of education and employability through sport. Drawing on their many years of successful work at local and regional levels, each of these partners brings great expertise into the project to ensure sustainability, ownership and real societal transformation from within European communities. We are driven by the belief that all parts of society need to join forces to tackle social, cultural, economic and educational challenges of NEET young people, and we work closely with various corporate partners, sport federations, employment agencies, local authorities and schools. The “European Toolkit on Youth Employability through Football” aims to inspire, mobilize and expand the promotion of innovative practices to tackle the European youth unemployment crisis. Over the course of two years, the toolkit will be researched, developed and tested to ensure it serves as a valuable guide for trainers and youth workers throughout Europe, opening spaces for youth with fewer opportunities to compete in the labour market as trained professionals with sustainable life-skills. Furthermore, the toolkit allows youth organisations, schools and vocational training centres to increase the attractiveness of and commitment to their programmes. Finally, the toolkit will establish a strategic evaluation vision amongst all key stakeholders and implement a set of recording tools that enable organisations to provide a consistent and comparable dashboard of social impact indicators that their projects deliver. In many areas of promoting high quality youth work, the most profound learning and training activities can only be achieved on-site, by actually relating to the physical environment in which an organisation operates. We have thus selected a set of distinct case studies that are in a position to share their knowledge via facilitated peer-to-peer learning, teaching and training activities, and to support the practical creation of the toolkit. To further leverage the results of the project, streetfootballworld and the project consortium offer concrete training opportunities in the toolkit’s inclusive methodologies for interested youth organisations, enhancing their capacity in employability programmes and thus increasing life-saving opportunities for disadvantaged youth across Europe. Visibility will be bolstered through Multiplier Events, using streetfootballworld’s expertise in European mega-events (for instance, the UEFA Euro 2016 in France or a public conference) to launch the “Team Up!” intellectual output to a wider European audience in Brussels. In sum, the event and conference will attract an estimated 100,000 spectators and reach a wider audience of more than 4,000,000 Europeans through media and online coverage.
