Reframing attitudes of minors and youth at risk of offending / re-offending through training
The project aims to strengthen youth offenders’ soft skills through high quality educational material on the development of key employability skills. The purpose will be realized through the following objectives:
Strengthen ex-convicted child offenders’ competences and basic skills in order to ease their transition to adulthood and support their integration in the labour market.
Develop activities focusing on the strengthening of inclusion and employability of child offenders as young people with fewer opportunities.
Support CSOs focusing on the protection and the re-integration of child offenders and encourage young people at risk of marginalisation to regain their life and place in the society.
Engage CSOs and stakeholders from the business sectors and educate them to eliminate the stereotypes related to child offenders post release employability.
