The MotivatEyoUth project has come to an end. It has been more than two years in which we have encountered many difficulties and unforeseen circumstances, which we have finally been able to overcome.
This project aimed to improve the job opportunities of young people. On the one hand, through prevention, by detecting the risk of early school leaving among young people between 14 and 18 years old who were still in the education system, and on the other hand, through intervention, encouraging young people between 18 and 24 years old who had already left school prematurely to continue their education.
The project has involved partners from 5 European countries: Italy, Cyprus, Portugal, Poland and Spain, who have collaborated in the development of all the results of the project, contributing their experience and expertise in the topic.
It has been a long journey, in which we have been faced with restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has made it much more difficult to reach our target group, young people, as schools and associations where young people meet were closed for several months.
Despite the difficulties, which forced us to adapt to the new circumstances, to innovate and improvise, we are proud to present the results of the project, which are:
- An online game “Journey to your future” to detect young people at high risk of engaging in the phenomenon of early school leaving.
- An ICT tool for competence assessment
- An educational platform that hosts an expert programme toolkit
All these materials are available in English, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Polish and Spanish free of charge and at the disposal of anyone who is interested in using them on the project website: http://www.motivateyouth.eu
