Bringing Young Mothers Back to Education in six European countries

05.08.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

The problem of young mothers dropping out of education and facing difficulties in going back to education or training or entering the labour market with low qualifications is still a larger scale problem in Europe. Therefore, a consortium of partners with a complementary mix of skills and experience has launched the project ‘’Bringing Young Mothers Back to Education – BYMBE’’.

BYMBYE aimed at producing training tools in support of the work of social workers, teachers and trainers for the purpose of sustaining young mothers between 15 and 25 years old in re-entering education or training for a better access to the labour world.

The project which was implemented in 6 European countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania and Spain) included international trainings, trainings for professionals and most importantly activities with young mothers who were provided with professional counseling, coaching and provision of supplement services to empower the young girls to make their own professional way and reduce their risk on welfare dependency.

The project also resulted in the elaboration of six publications including Handbook for Outreach Awareness & Motivation Strategies, support, orientation and empowerment packs, among others. To learn more about the project, please check the link below.
