Skills for You(th) through Sport
January 2019 - December 2020
The ’Skills for You(th) through Sport’ SK4YS is a transnational initiative of European sport, youth organizations, and educational institutions in order to raise awareness on soft skills and competencies gained through sports practice and to build the capacity of these organizations to implement sport-based employment programs. The two years project builds on a cross-sectoral approach of sport, youth and education policies of the European Union and on the outcomes of some former European initiatives such as „Sport employs YOUrope”. Through strengthened cooperation, the project aims to increase recognition of transferable skills that sport can develop for young people – especially those not in employment, education, or training.
