Thinking Space Paper No.10: An activation programme for NEETs

The following paper presents activation measures for a support programme for NEETs. The activation approach was developed and tested by KIZ in cooperation with underserved youth and shows how disadvantaged target groups can be motivated to (re)integrate into the labour market. The concept of activation essentially follows the three principles that the participants in a programme should understand and internalise: Getting to know yourself, breaking up unhelpful behavioural patterns and taking responsibility for one’s own life.
