The Unit supports and promotes educational, training and mobility activities aimed at young people.
Based on CESIE experiences and deep understanding of this target group, the Unit sees such activities as a means to foster social inclusion and encourage civic participation. Thanks to its young and skilful staff, the Youth unit uses non-formal education strategies to prepare, implement and monitor projects, targeted at young people and youth workers and carried out at local, European and international level.
Promotion of mobility opportunities for young people and youth workers (youth exchange, training courses, study visit, internship, job shadowing, volunteering activities) so as to help them grow as professionals and as people.
Research, development and promotion of tools and good practices in order to strengthen the influential impact of youth on their communities.
Development of creative and bottom-up activities to empower young people from different backgrounds.
