Rationale

The EU 2020 Agenda aims “to expand career and life enhancing learning opportunities for young people with fewer opportunities and/or at risk of social exclusion. In particular, these young people should benefit from the expansion of opportunities for non-formal and informal learning and
from strengthened provisions for the recognition and validation”. Effective Youth Work and Non-Formal Learning empowers Young People and encourages their active participation in society. It equips them with competences and experiences for life, thus maximising the protective factors which enhance the development, autonomy and social inclusion of all young people, including those with fewer opportunities.
