The overall aim of CREUS Project is to provide a new approach focusing on ‘unconventional spaces’ to support the transversal skills of disadvantaged and unemployed young people (16-24 years-old) to maximize their potential in terms of fostering social, cultural and economic inclusion through access to initial VET and labor markets. Its specific objectives are the followings:
- To design and test new structured non-formal learning activities for disadvantaged young people delivered via tutor and peer support in ‘unconventional spaces’, as opposed to the classroom;
- To create an innovative series of intellectual outputs that will support tutors, trainers and peer mentors who use cultural learning in non-formal contexts and 'unconventional spaces’ to engage disadvantaged young people;
- To develop transversal and transferable skills for disadvantaged young people in order to get access to Vocational Educational and Training (VET) system and employment.
