KA2 Erasmus Strategic Partnership and Innovation Project: Connection Opportunities for People in Europe (COPE)

Connection Opportunities for People in Europe (COPE)

Since the completion of our Connection Opportunities for People in Europe (COPE) project in 2020, many youth managers have gained from the information, knowledges and good practices shared. The COPE project trains young people, both projects target young people with fewer opportunities directly or indirectly.

Connection Opportunities for People in Europe

COPE’s rationale is focused on two key elements of the EU policies: social inclusion and unemployment amongst youth with fewer opportunities.

COPE can be considered as one of the EU’s affirmations’ solution: “Young people need the opportunity to develop the skills and competences which will help them to find their place in the labour market and in society as a whole.”

COPE aims to:

  • Connect young people in Europe with the aim of increasing social inclusion, promoting EU values, diversity, acceptance and inter-cultural and social dialogue.
  • COPE encourages youth to support their peers in need through volunteering and learning exchanges.
  • Fight against long-term work/training inactivity.
  • Increase the basic skills of young people with fewer opportunities through simplified training and peer learning;
  • Connect young people with fewer opportunities with job centres and inform them about projects such as; European job support and initiatives
  • Make Erasmus+ accessible to everyone and motivate young people with fewer opportunities to take part in a mobility project with the aim of:
  • Increasing the employability and social skills of young people with fewer opportunities;
  • Decreasing the fears young have about mobility through guidance.
