Summary what will be youth exchange about: 

Young people in the EU have high indicators of lack of initiative and participation in society, which increases their exclusion, disintegration, or dissatisfaction. As a result of this problem, according to Eurostat data, for the year 2018, in the EU28, it was found:
-Of the total population at risk of poverty and social exclusion, 28.2% are young (between 18 and
24 years old);
-There were 13.7% young NEETs between 18 and 24 years old;
-Of the total unemployed, young people between 20 and 24 years old represent 12.9% of the total

There is an urgent need to develop measures that promote the training of young people to define personal, social, and professional paths that are inclusive, entrepreneurial, and integrated into the labor market and to facilitate the transition to adult life and/or to a professional change. Thus, this project is specifically targeted at young people: excluded and at risk of poverty; NEET; unemployed; with precarious jobs; who want to change jobs; who want to change their situation at work; or want to develop their entrepreneurial skills.

Participants will be from Portugal Portugal, Estonia Estonia, Spain Spain, Italy Italy, Greece Greece and Slovakia Slovakia. 5 from each country.
