What is it about?

A low-threshold offer for young people aged 15-25 in danger of exclusion. It is aimed specifically at those with a maximum of a school leaving certificate, i.e. those with greater need for support in their educational and career planning. A modular offer has been devised for them with different degrees of commitment which takes account of the conflict between the needs and goal-focusing of the young people. Progress is possible thanks to the modules in open space, testing, training and employment and dropping out of the project is therefore more difficult.
