PROMOTING EMPLOYMENT FOR YOUTH AT RISK OF SOCIAL EXCLUSION

Currently, one of the main challenges facing our society is the social exclusion of young people, a problem that negatively affects their full integration into society. To address this situation, it is crucial to implement effective strategies that promote employment among this vulnerable group. One of the fundamental measures to combat youth unemployment is to invest in training and professional development programs tailored to their needs and specific contexts. These programs not only provide them with the technical skills required in the job market but also promote the development of socio-emotional competencies and soft skills, essential for their successful job placement. Furthermore, it is important to raise awareness within society about the importance of labour inclusion and the value that diversity brings to the workplace. Breaking stereotypes and prejudices facilitates the integration of young people at risk of social exclusion, creating more inclusive and equitable work environments. To promote this values, during the academic year 2023/2024, Centro San Viator is developing different projects for young people at risk of social exclusion to improve their employability and offer them new and better job opportunities. During 4 months, they receive training as part of upskilling-reskilling programs combined with a specific training about socio-labor competencies that allows them to acquire the necessary skills to enter the job market. This program has the support of companies in the sector where students will carry out an internship period for one month. On this occasion, we have focused on the fields of document digitization and gardening and green space maintenance with various groups: young migrants, people with intellectual disabilities, mental illness, among others. This program is aligned with the objectives pursued by the GIVE Project, and with the attempt to frame our performance in achieving a higher quality of life for the most vulnerable youth in society. image1 1
