In recent years EPR members have increasingly expressed interest collaborating in the area of working with young people with disabilities. The joint work started off in December 2020 at the (online) National Awareness Raising Event (NARE) in Germany where a number of EPR members presented their services and programmes for young people with disabilities. In addition, EPR is currently leading 2 Erasmus+ projects with members focused on young people, Jump2Job and TransitAction.
The meeting of the Thematic Incubator Youth on 17 May helped identifying key challenges relevant for many if not all service providers and topics of common interests for the EPR members participating. They are elaborated more in detail on p. 1 of the agenda and in the event report. The participants agreed to look in more detail at these common challenges and interests in a follow-up meeting.
Participants of the meeting on 30 June are asked to present their work and existing/good practice in relation to one of the five topics of common interest. In the registration form participants are asked to indicate on which of the topics they could make a contribution to facilitate mutual exchange and learning. They will also discuss the interest to jointly develop a project concept and proposal. The EPR Secretariat will give an overview on the relevant EU policy framework and recent initiatives in the field of youth in order to help contextualising our thematic work.
To attend this meeting, please register by filling in the registration form before the 24th June. The link to join the seminar and further instructions will be sent to all registered participants a few days prior to the event.
