Local community needs: Although mobility benefits have been proven, local young under NEETs group, do not consider to have an experienced abroad even they are financially supported. According to discussions with local stakeholders (third sector organisations, educators and others), this is due to the lack of information, awareness of mobility benefits, and lack of motivation of youth. These experiences will connect young people with EVS volunteers. It will raise awareness about Erasmus+ programmes and will benefits all participants.
