BYMBE – Bringing Young Mothers Back to Education

Home » Projects » Adult » BYMBE – Bringing Young Mothers Back to Education

Provide training tools in support of the work of social workers, teachers and trainers for sustaining young mothers in re-entering education or training for a better access to the labour world.

The project was awarded the status of Good Practice of Erasmus+ by the European Commission and selected as Case Study of Inclusion in Education and Training by the European Commission.


The project aimed to improve the social inclusion of young mothers (who are NEET) by supporting them to re-enter education or training. As early school leaving of young mothers is an issue throughout Europe, the project partnership brought together partners with complementary skills and experience to deal with this issue at European level, while adapting project activities to national and local contexts. For this, it focused on raising awareness among young mothers of the risks of dropping out of education early and of motivational efforts for them to re-enter education, working with specific training tools and materials (including peer group activities, counselling and motivational activities). In addition, training was held for professionals such as trainers or social workers, to help them to deepen the competences needed for working with this target group.
