About The Project

"Youth Clustering... SME" was a seminar developed in the framework of Erasmus+ - Youth in Action Programme that took place in Fernão Ferro - Seixal [Portugal]; the main goals of the seminar were focused on the reflection and promotion of intersectorial partnerships between youth/non formal education organizations and the private corporate sector, mainly with small and medium enterprises.

This intersectorial dialogue had a frame related to the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities, especifically young migrants or refugees. To understand better the seminar, you can see this presentation video of the project.
