This report tells you what the Department of Children and Youth Affairs found out in consultations (interviews, meetings, workshops, surveys and events) about how young people who are out of education, work and training can be better included in society. ‘Being included in society’ means feeling like you are an important part of and involved in the world around you, for example, with your family and friends, in your school, area and clubs.
The consultations were part of a programme run across Europe called ‘Structured Dialogue’ which aims to let young people have a say in creating youth policies in the European Union (EU).
We spoke to young people, youth workers and experts (people who make policies and decisions in government, youth organisations and other organisations).
