Fundación Exit

Mission: To enable at-risk youth to enter the job market through innovative training projects which add value to businesses and promote collaboration.

Where they work: Spain

Our partnership:  We supported Fundación Exit from 2014 to 2018 with grant funding.

Spain has one of the highest rates of NEET youth (Not in Employment, Education or Training) in Europe and young people with an immigrant background are around 70% more likely to become NEET than their peers.
Fundación Exit works to tackle this by placing at-risk youth into training projects and employment opportunities. One of its core programmes, Project YOB, works with unemployed youth from disadvantaged backgrounds facing long-term exclusion from the workforce. The programme helps them to build up skills for an effective job search (CV and cover letter building, interview skills) with intensive training, and then places the young people on internships with corporate partners to gain valuable work experience and the potential for full time employment.
