BYMBE: Training for social worker to support Young NEET Mothers

27 July 2018 | Adult

How to support young mothers in going back to school or vocational education and training?

 Project BYMBE has identified a set of intervention methods useful to involve young NEET mothers – not (engaged) in education, employment or training – and aimed at:

  • Promoting a personal development path,
  • Facilitating their re-entering in the educational or vocational system,
  • Improve their future prospects for their and their families’ well-being.

To support the work of social workers, we offer a free training course to 20 social workers, teachers and trainers, educational and vocational guidance counsellors and psychologists to improve the skills of those working with young mothers.

Training course will be held on the 2nd of August from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, at CESIE (Via Roma, 94), in Palermo.
