Active citizens fund supports Odyssea in empowering youth and fostering equitable opportunities
With the project “Empowerment and vocational training for youth neither in employment nor in education or training (NEET’s)”, Active citizens fund programme funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and with fund operators in Greece Bodossaki Foundation in consortium with SolidarityNow, supports Odyssea aiming at empowering young people and creating a society of equal opportunities for all. This partnership comes at a crucial juncture and promises to make a lasting impact on the lives of vulnerable young individuals.
The challenges facing youth in Greece have become increasingly complex as the economic impact of the pandemic has exacerbated issues like inequality, especially among vulnerable social groups. Through this project, Odyssea focuses on making a greater difference in the lives of those who need it the most. More precisely, Active citizens programme will provide support to Odyssea’s vocational training programmes and employability services. This will enable Odyssea to expand its outreach and offer its opportunities to an even larger number of young people in need. By empowering youth with education, training, and support, the project seeks to create a society where everyone has equitable opportunities to succeed, regardless of their background or circumstances.
The project “Empowerment and vocational training for youth neither in employment nor in education or training (NEET’s)” is being implemented under the Active citizens fund in Greece by Odyssea.
The Active citizens fund in Greece is supported through a €15 m grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway as part of the EEA Grants 2014 – 2021. The programme aims to develop the sustainability and capacity of the civil society sector in Greece, and to strengthen its role in promoting and safeguarding democratic procedures, active citizenship and human rights. The Fund Operator for the Active citizens fund in Greece is Bodossaki Foundation in consortium with SolidarityNow.
