Youth policy and participation. the role of participation and informal learning in the transition of young people to the labour market. a comparative analysis in 10 european regions.

Objective

The project analyses limits and potential of young people's active participation in their transitions to work. Respective policies have not always considered young people's subjective motivation for citizenship and lifelong learning. By enhancing the role of local youth policies within this area the potential of informal learning in transitions to work is expected to be uncovered. Experiences of young people in ten European regions will be assessed, comparing disengaged young people with 'risk biographies' to those with 'choice biographies' combining formal and informal learning. Case studies of good practice will analyse in the potential for empowerment and active participation in local youth policy. European added value is provided by a typology of participatory policies and a European training module for youth workers.
