Youth Guidance Centres (One-Stop-Shops)
Managing multi-competent teams – a new profession with a tailor-made education
Towards the end of the year we welcome you to a workshop discussing support to vulnerable groups of young people. Young adults not in education or training and without a job is a vulnerable group in our societies. This group is often referred to as NEETs (Not in Employment, Education or Training). A diverse group, difficult to find, difficult to motivate to take the first step to ask for help and when they are in contact with welfare services the needed measures are complex. Therefore so-called “Youth Guidance Centres”, providing multiple welfare services gathered under one roof has proved to be a successful model when organizing an effective answer to this societal and individual challenge. This low-threshold service provision has become increasingly common, particularly in the Baltic Sea Region with for example “Ohjaamo” in Finland, “Navigatorcentrum” in Sweden, “Ungevejen” in Denmark and “Jugendberufsagentur” in Germany. At this workshop you will be introduced to the concept of “Youth Guidance Centres” and meet coordinators from three such centres in the Baltic Sea Region. You find more information in the attached invitation including the programme.
