The first European network address to the young (ex) offenders employability and social exclusion
Euro Forum EYES is created from the European Project EXYOnet (European Network for employability of Young (ex) offenders), the first European network address to the employability of young offenders and social exclusion, that belongs to the Youth in Action Program of the European Union.
A union of 5 entities of different European countries
Youth unemployment, a multidimensional problem
Through this Forum we are going to transmit different perspectives, being a good instrument to present the obtained results and the communitarian action proposals, as well as the White Book about European intervention proposals in employability programs for young people.
Currently, the unemployment of young people affects negatively to their perspectives and incomes, as well as their health levels and labour satisfaction, even after two decades. The ILO reports highlight that there is a demonstrated link between youth unemployment and social exclusion. Such as it is described “the inability to find employment creates a sense of uselessness and idleness among young people that can lead to increased crime, mental health problems, violence, conflicts and drug taking.”
Therefore it is about employment, of the employability as an antidote against social exclusion, a protection factor for young people. Also it is aimed to tackle the issue from the education’s perspective and its influence in the employment perspective of young people. Concepts like creativity, education, labour market and social exclusion integrates an equation with complex relationships.
An opportunity of knowing the key of successful initiatives
What tools and resources offers the EU in the field of youth employment?
Which is the future of the labour insertion of UE young people?
What solutions are succeeding in their countries?
When an iniciative is successful? How this can be measured?
We will look for answers to questions such as: Does the educative model influence in the countries that generates employment? Why in many countries there is over-qualification? When must a young person enter into the labour market? When during his academic life a young person must access to a job? There are educational models that facilitate the development of the individual capacities and reduce the risk of exclusion. ¿Does the development of the capacities work as a protection factor? We know that there are societies more standardized that do not facilitate the development of personal initiatives. It is possible that those educational models that exist in those societies generates more labour exclusion and therefore, social exclusion?
