Youth Volunteer Educators e-learning Program for young migrants and refugees (e-VELP) (Number: 2019-3-DE04-KA205-018805)
The project’s idea originated from the rising concern for young migrant/refugee conditions that increased upon the arrival of an estimate of 1 million refugees into the EU in 2015. Majority of the migrants come from the youth sector, highly motivated yet low in skills. The skills gap poses a challenge to their assimilation into their new community. Consequently, a rise in politicisation increased fears and discrimination within the welcoming countries particularly due from a lack of personal contact.
