The “NEETs in Entrepreneurship” project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants’ Fund for Youth Employment. It is implemented by five Junior Achievement member organisations (JA Europe, JA Bulgaria, JA Italy, JA Romania and JA Spain), in addition to JA Norway who acts as an expertise partner.

By the end of the project in 2021, 1,600 young people not in education, employment or training (NEETs) in the four beneficiary countries (Bulgaria, Italy, Romania and Spain) will have received training and support to acquire the necessary skills to find a job or start their own business. In addition, the project aims to prevent another 1,000 students from becoming NEETs by giving them training and counseling.
