About

There is a huge amount of cases across the EU, which involve young people committing a crime. The charges are ranging from minor status offences, such as theft, to such serious crimes such as burglary, robbery, violence, homicide etc. Afterwards, young people often face social exclusion and very limited future prospects, which leads them back to crime. Thus, there is a need to take some steps to avoid that.
“Climb-Over”, a 2-year Erasmus+ funded project, which aims to help reintegration of young offenders and prevent youth from making offences by making a good use of youth work.

Key activities:

Research on the best ways to integrate young (ex)offenders into youth work
