Moves offers valuable work experience to Swedish youth

The idea of the project is that women and men aged 18-30, who are neither working nor studying, get the opportunity to travel to another EU country and do an internship together with a group of young people in the same situation. Due to the pandemic, the project has been forced to change its original idea of traveling abroad and the participants have so far done their internship in Sweden.

The internship is carried out under supervision for a period of 6–8 weeks including a  preparation phase and a follow-up phase. The goal is for young people who have no education or work, for example due to health issues, to be helped to break free from negative social contexts and face new challenges.

After completing the internship the participants have hopefully achieved a stronger self-confidence, motivation and drive and thereby increasing their chances of approaching work or education.
