The New Chance Mediterranean Network (MedNC)

OBJECTIVE 1

Reconcile young people with training and work

OBJECTIVE 2

Improve young people’s access to employment

According to the ILO, 71 million young people around the world, aged between 15 and 24 years, looked for but did not find work in 2017. This is particularly true in the Mediterranean Basin with a growing percentage of young people joining the Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) category. This concerns 1 young person out of 3 in Tunisia, 1 young person out of 4 in Italy and 1 young person out of 6 in France. It is urgent to set up solutions that allow young people to find a place in society and play an active role in it. In parallel, hundreds of thousands of jobs are not filled because of a shortage of qualified candidates.

The New Chance Mediterranean Network (MedNC) is made up of players from the Mediterranean Basin who, locally, have developed professional integration measures generating results that are above the national averages. However, these initiatives are still relatively unknown and insufficiently supported by the public authorities for the challenges that they face.

The New Chance Mediterranean network aims to strengthen the qualitative and quantitative impact of training and professional integration players in each country and inform about the state of these initiatives so that their good practices are integrated into policies. The IECD’s mission is to drive, coordinate, develop and optimize the results of this network. The members meet several times a year to discuss their experiences and improve their skills through targeted training. Communication actions are deployed that target public authorities and the sector’s stakeholders, thus contributing to the extension of the most relevant models and innovations. One crucial objective is to form strong partnerships with the world of business as well as with institutional partners.
