Empow­er­ment for young people

Young peo­ple in Europe: Recog­nis­ing obsta­cles and pro­mot­ing the future!

How can young peo­ple in Europe be giv­en a suc­cess­ful start to their future? Our guide pro­vides sug­ges­tions (down­load below).

In a time of glob­al uncer­tain­ties and socio-eco­nom­ic chal­lenges, Europe’s youth face many hur­dles. Fos­ter­ing Futures: A Guide to Empow­er­ing Europe’s Youth” takes a look at the lives of young peo­ple in Europe, espe­cial­ly those from social­ly and eco­nom­i­cal­ly dis­ad­van­taged backgrounds.

The guide high­lights the com­plex chal­lenges they face, such as access to qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion, expe­ri­ences of struc­tur­al and insti­tu­tion­al dis­crim­i­na­tion and eco­nom­ic insecurity.

Using case stud­ies from var­i­ous Euro­pean coun­tries, the guide out­lines how com­pa­nies can sup­port young peo­ple and offer them new prospects – through inno­v­a­tive strate­gies and tar­get­ed sup­port pro­grammes. These oppor­tu­ni­ties range from spe­cial edu­ca­tion­al pro­grammes and entry-lev­el intern­ships to men­tor­ing, what all approach­es have in com­mon is that they facil­i­tate the tran­si­tion from school to the labour mar­ket and enable indi­vid­ual careers. This ben­e­fits not only the young peo­ple them­selves, but also the com­pa­nies involved (and ulti­mate­ly soci­ety as a whole).

The guide empha­sis­es the impor­tant role of com­pa­nies in tack­ling youth unem­ploy­ment and uses many prac­ti­cal exam­ples to show how they can con­tribute to the solu­tion.

Fos­ter­ing Futures” is more than just a guide; it is a call to action to build a more sta­ble, inclu­sive and pros­per­ous future for Europe’s youth!
