Unlocking Youth Potential

The Financial Mechanism Office in charge of the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021, has published a new call for proposals (Unlocking Youth Potential) under the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment, with deadline for proposals 5 January 2021.

The Fund for Youth Employment supports projects that promote sustainable and quality youth employment in 18 beneficiary countries (the 15 beneficiary states of the EEA and Norway Grants + Ireland, Italy and Spain). Funding is made available for initiatives seeking to ensure access to employment, education or training for the following target groups:

  • Young people not in employment, education or training (NEET) who are between 25 and 29 years old and live in small towns, suburbs or in rural areas;
  • Young mothers not in employment, education or training (NEET) who are between 25 and 29 years old; and
  • Long-term unemployed people who are between 25 and 29 years old.

 

Young NEETs who are not registered with the public employment services, are low-skilled, have dropped out of school, and face multiple barriers to entering the labour market (such as poverty, social exclusion, discrimination, disability and/or poor mental health) shall enjoy the highest priority within the target groups.

 

The fund operator (Ecorys Polska/JCP) is responsible for the contact with potential applicants. Applications shall be submitted electronically via the fund operator's system. All partners are required to register before the application can be completed. See https://www.egregsystem.info/unlockingyouthpotential/.
