The percentage of young "young NEET" has grown in recent years (European Commission, 2012). The project ”Participation for Inclusion” is a youth exchange project for young people from 6 European countries.

One of the main reasons why we want to pursue this project is to promote the concept of social entrepreneurship for young people across Europe.
