The partners of the Young Entrepreneurs Succeed program organized the 5th Project Internal Workshop. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop was conducted digitally on 6-7 October 2020.
The 1st day was dedicated to the progress of the project. The partners discussed activities and progress of the planned work and the implications of the pandemic on the activities in the partner countries. In addition the Peer Learning Platform with its short Thinking Space Papers was presented and partners were asked to contribute with best practices and experiences..
The 2nd day focused on the NEETs seeking employment and means and tools to support this target-group. Because of COVID-19, many young people across Europe suddenly lost their jobs and are in need of specialized support to re-enter the labor market. On this basis, the attendees explored mentoring which could help NEETs find a job.
The partners agreed to collaborate during the forthcoming weeks on the preparation and implementation of a mentoring service dedicated to support NEETs seeking for employment.
