Youth PartnerSHIP project launch event




The Budapest Institute organised a launch event of the Youth PartnerSHIP project at its office on May 29, 2019. Representatives of the Budapest Institute, the Ministry of Finance, the Department of Labour Economics of Corvinus University of Budapest (who conduct field research on the practices of the PES local offices) and the Kontakt Foundation - an organisation active in the implementation of additional service elements related to the Youth Guarantee Programme, in cooperation with local PES offices - attended the launch event.

At the beginning of the event, Budapest Institute researchers Ágota Scharle and Márton Csillag presented the current state of the project and the planned design of the interventions in Hungary. The first one of these consists of the organisation of local workshops that bring together several local stakeholders and PES representatives. The goal is to facilitate communication and cooperation between stakeholders. By comparing outreach activities in workshop locations with other locations we can examine the impact on cooperation and the efficiency of outreach activities. The other intervention would aim to change the attitude of mothers who have children less than 3 years old to motivate them to start looking for employment or available training before their child reaches their third birthday. The intervention would be carried out in cooperation with local nurses who regularly visit families with small children.
