BARRIERS & OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EDUCATION
C2W started in May 2015 and aims to tackle the topic of young carers from Black and Minority Ethnic communities (BME) across Europe, and the
barriers that they face to access employment or further education/ training. Focusing on the Europe 2020 Strategy and
European Youth Strategy, C2W aims to foster integration, social equity and inclusion through a two-tier approach i.e. by empowering and involving directly marginalised youth in its delivery, while at the same time increasing the capacity of organisations servicing them. In line with the provisions of
the Lisbon Treaty to “encourage the participation of young people in democratic life in Europe”, through non-formal learning
activities and the development of an evidence-based training programme, C2W will promote innovation, exchange of experience and know-how between different types of organisations providing services to youth with fewer opportunities.
