The annual FEANTSA Youth Study sessions over the past three years have provided an opportunity for young professionals from across Europe to come together to identify key issues in tackling youth homelessness and propose a series of solutions. The study sessions have led to a growing and dynamic alumni network with membership from across a wide variety of fields including social work, youth work, academics, students, law, architecture, public policy (local and national civil services), NGOs and others.  

The past study sessions have focused on taking a human rights approach to preventing youth homelessness while also developing and implementing an advocacy strategy aimed at raising awareness for youth homelessness among policy makers.

In June 2017 the FEANTSA Youth Study Session will focus on Housing First for Youth. Housing First is a model of providing housing for people with chronic experiences of homelessness and complex needs. It has proven successful and is becoming mainstreamed into many European Government’s Housing and Homelessness Strategies. This study session will take the Housing First model and look at how best the model can be implemented to address youth homelessness, and the specific needs which often accompany youth homelessness.

We would like to draw your attention to the European conference "Volunteering for Social Change" at the Allianz Forum Berlin on 20 and 21 March 2017.

 

Tens of thousands of young people have completed a European Voluntary Service (EVS) in the last 20 years and have already benefited from great volunteering and learning experiences in Europe. However, up to this point, primarily young people with high school diplomas and students have taken part in European voluntary and mobility programs. What are the reasons for this and how can the EVS be made more accessible for all young people, irrespective of their educational background and social status?

 

The conference "Volunteering for Social Change" presents the project results of the European cooperation project "European Voluntary Service for All" (EVS4ALL), co-funded by Erasmus+. By the analysis of concrete voluntary services, fourteen organisations of European youth and volunteer work, as well as foundations from Germany, France, Great Britain, Poland, Spain and Romania, have developed European policy recommendations for an inclusive European Voluntary Service which will be presented and discussed at the conference in March. The conference will open on 20 March with an evening event during which Daniel Cohn-Bendit and MEP Brando Benifei, amongst others, will discuss how a socially just and inclusive Europe can be designed for young people.

The numbers, although often cited, are still staggering: We need 600 million new jobs over the next decade just to keep employment rates stable and keep up with population growth. Young people are up to four times as likely as adults to be unemployed. Around a third of youth worldwide — 621 million — are not in employment, education or training.

It’s clear more needs to be done — but do we know how much more?
