Jorens Kvele-Kvals participated in the Training Course “The NEET Challenge” organized by PROJUVEN in Torremolinos, Spain
Hello Jorens! Can you give us your opinion about the project “The NEET Challenge“? According to you, what support works best for young people at risk of becoming NEET?
Hello, my name is Jorens. The NEET Challenge project was a surprisingly interesting experience for me where I discovered a lot of new information about the situation in Europe, opinions of other people and how the situation is already being improved by European Union.
First of all, before this event, I didn’t knew what NEET stands for, so this was a mind opener and giving it a deeper thought I found out that in my circle of friends and friend of friends, I also have some young people who can be defined as not in employment, education or training (NEET’s). While hearing from other people who came to this project from different Europe countries, I learned to see how they think about this situation and what could be done about it to improve the reality.
In the end, all of the people in the project were bringing great solutions, suggestions to help these people in need and we all even took photos and promote the project among the native and tourists living in Spain to bring awareness to the bad conditions that young people living in Europe are having.
I think to improve the NEET’s situation we should let young people focus more on doing and testing a lot of stuff , for example, jobs, training, opportunities and projects like this one which I attended thanks to Projuven. In my opinion, the best thing I learned from this event was that we can teach people not only in a traditional way of sitting in school or university – formerly, but also learning from life, job and people, like mentors or coaches.
I want to give a big thank you to the organization of this training event for making it happen and building a perfect execution of the project to help us understand in the best way, what really happens in our continent.
