PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The PlayIN project aims to promote and support professional and social inclusion of disadvantaged young adults through informal and non-formal activities and notably through sport practice. The project plans to achieve this objective through the development of efficient and friendly-users methods and tools adapted for 1) sport organizations 2) disadvantaged young adults that can be replicated at European scale. We expect that, thanks to the open access methods and tools developed, 1) sport organisations will be better equipped to support professional and social inclusion of young people through sport 2) NEETs will be better aware of informal skills they can develop through sport practice and how they can leverage those skills into the labour market 3) companies and sports organisations with reinforced their collabroation dynamics as part of their educational role The project aims to achieve the following expected results: At short and middle-term: – To mobilize and enhance the sport movement to take actions for professional and social inclusion of disadvantaged young adults; – To foster collaboration between the sport movement, companies, public bodies, local actors, civil society and young people on professional and social inclusion through informal and non-formal activities and notably through sport practice; – To support volunteering of young people in sport related sectors; – To create working synergies in the promotion of voluntary missions and the recognition of acquired competences ; – To strengthen the capacities of the organizations working with volunteers.
