 Handbook: Best Practices on sport for employability for young people at risk of exclusion

The handbook will contain a selection of projects / initiatives already tested in Europe with the objective of fostering the employability skills and abilities of young people at risk of exclusion. Special focus will be put on the practical aspects of these best practices, as STEP4youth’s own model will be built with an extremely practical approach.

Practical intervention (manual) and training material
