Non-Formal Education Helps Employability of Young People, Research Finds!

The European Youth Forum, in cooperation with the University of Bath and GHK Consulting, presented the findings of the study “The impact of Non?Formal Education in Youth Organisations on Young people’s Employability.”

The aim of this study was to assess whether the competencies and skills obtained through non-formal education programs in youth associations, contribute to youth employability.

Long-lasting and frequent engagement and participation in youth organisations brings high soft-skills development. Amongst the six skills mostly demanded by employers, five are also among those developed through involvement in youth organisations: such as communication, team work, decision-making, organisational skills and self-confidence. For young people who participated in non-formal education activities abroad, this includes also higher development of language, intercultural and leadership skills.
