Respectful disability language

EU Youth Report 2017 published on 15 September 2018 shows that the economic situation affects young people, increasing the unemployment rate and risk of social exclusion and poverty rate. The youth work through non-formal education must pursue activities that tackle youth unemployment and social exclusion, thus playing a fundamental role in supporting youth education, and encouraging them to participate in social life. Moreover, half of all respondents (50 %) said that they had personally felt discriminated against or harassed on the grounds of disability towards other people.

 

The project “Respectful Disability Language” was inspired by trainers and participants that met during a Social Entrepreneurship project in Poland. The mobility was focused on youth with a disability, the social business that support and help them and ways how to foster their inclusion into society also during taking part in the European project. The topic has been so interesting and discovering for many and they decided to go deeper into the topic of youth with disabilities and lack of equity, especially in terms of access to the labour market. We want to propose a project that will equip youth workers working already with young people with disabilities in new skills and methods of  activating this vulnerable group into the labour market.

Objectives of the project:

  • Competencies to involve youth with disabilities in the labor market
  • Better understanding of situations of youth with disabilities
  • Broad information about opportunities for youth with special needs
  • Knowledge how to decrease the poverty among youth with disabilities
