HEY project addresses the challenges young people, especially those with fewer opportunities face today, especially with the COVID-19 crisis, which may lead to social exclusion in the fields of education, labour market, living, health and participation in the society. The project aims at contributing towards the empowerment of young people, mainly those with fewer opportunities, those returning back to their country of origin from abroad, and regionally attached youth by:

a) supporting their positive engagement in building more equal and inclusive communities through innovative and transnational youth initiatives;

B) improving the existing local youth work practice of the youth leaders and operators, through quality and sustainability of digital youth work and online and blended training and the recognition of the vital role the youth sector plays in helping young people recover from detrimental effects, overcoming poverty of hope, and to mitigate the impact of the Pandemic; and

c) improving successful school-to-work transitions, as a potentially powerful way of weakening the intergenerational transmission of poverty and reducing inequality.Throughout the project a variety of activities will be organised and implemented under the following categories:

A1 - Project Management - activities with the aim to ensure the implementation of the project activities in high quality and within the allocated time and Budget;
