"Real chances for young NEETs"   Project


A1. Information and promotion among young NEETS in order to be registered and profiled by the SPO, respectively their selection and maintenance in order to be included in the target group of the project

A1.1 Organization and running of an information and promotion campaign among NEETS young people in order to register and profile/selection and inclusion in the target group of the project

The development of an information and promotion campaign is being considered in order to identify people aged between 16 and 29 who are not employed and do not follow any form of education or training.

The information and promotion campaign aims to make potential members of the WG aware of the importance of professional training, of participation in FPC programs, of the benefits and support offered by the project, in an attempt to mobilize them to develop their professional life through continuous learning and participation active on the job market.

The information and promotion campaign will include at least 8 online or face-to-face actions to inform and raise awareness among young NEETs about the project's actions and benefits. The face-to-face sessions will take place following the previous publicity made by posting announcements and posters in various locations of interest: mayors and headquarters of AJOFM and other public institutions of interest from the 3 counties involved. These meetings will have in mind the efficiency of the selection process and registration of the target group, representing the direct contact with the target group of the implementation experts. These events will take place in each implementing county, and for the promotion and publicity of these meetings, partnerships with the town halls and other public authorities in the concerned counties will be considered. In addition, the online campaigns will be disseminated through social media, the project website and online advertisements.

In the framework of the information and promotion campaign, which aims to make potential members of the WG aware of the benefits and support offered by the project, informational content will be disseminated regarding the principles related to Social Innovation, the FSE Secondary Themes and the POCU Horizontal Themes.
