Young people have been most affected from the recent economic downturn. Actually, in 2011 there were 5 million young people not in education, employment or training (known as NEETs).
Also, unemployment rate was (and still is) a major concern for young people, as Greece and Portugal had surpassed the EU average. Young people, who are the future of every society, when they face problems both economically and socially, are likely to remain at this level having a bleak future, so special care is needed in order to engage them in labor market and society.
Youth2Work provides Career Support to Young NEETs using Career Circles as a tool for their Personal and Professional Development.
