The project Bringing Young Mothers Back to Education – BYMBE aims to produce training tools in support of the work of social workers, teachers and trainers for the purpose of sustaining young mothers between 15 and 25 years old in re-entering education or training for a better access to the labour world.
Target groups of the project:
Overall objective of the project is to improve social inclusion of young mothers, which are not in employment, education or training (NEETs) by bringing them back to school (education or training). The specific project objectives reflect the holistic and innovative nature of the approach chosen by the partners.
Objectives of BYMBE Project:
The planned project impact on the young mothers
The overall longterm impact of the BYMBE project will be to raise the general awareness of the risk to be exposed to poverty of young mothers dropping out education and to motivate young mothers to re-enter education.
Most important on shortterm during the lifetime of the BYMBE project is the development of a successful support package for young mothers which will be implemented in a pilot with min. 12 young mothers from 6 countries (all together 72) are expected to re-enter education. They will be the pioneers for promotion of the project tools after the project end.
BYMBE shall have a remarkable impact on professional education of young mothers and the reduction of being exposed to social exclusion and at risk of poverty. The individual activities shall improve:
1) Their awareness regarding the fact that they have low chances to have a job and earn a reasonable income to assure living standards for themselves and their child without professional education;
2) The provision of professional orientation and counselling tailored to their special needs;
3) Their social skills, motivation, self-awareness and ability to make decisions for their life;
4) The support provision to them during the process of education which enables them to carry out their professional plans till the end.
As a result with the motivation of young mothers to return and finished their education will be improved. So this will be reflected in a greater number of young mothers who finish their studies. The employability of young mothers will increase, since they will receive work orientation and empowerment training. All of this will have a direct impact on the children of the young mothers, as it will improve the quality of life and future of both.
