Skills for You(th) through Sport - SK4YS

SK4YS – Skills for You(th) through Sport – is a transnational initiative of European sport, youth organisations and educational institutions whose aim is to raise awareness of soft skills and competences learnt through sport and implement them through sport-based employment programmes.

The two-year awareness-raising initiative, which targets young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those not in employment or training, focuses on a cross-sector approach of sport, youth, employment and education policies.

The project will look to empower sport, youth and educational institutions by developing and delivering sport-based employability programmes for young people through the collection, classification and promotion of European good practices, made available through an educational handbook.

The main outcome of the project will be a good practice database and an online handbook (educational module) which will be developed for representatives of youth and sport organisations, coaches, trainers and youth leaders on topics related to soft skills development through sport, the contribution of sport and physical activity to key competences and developing sport and employability programmes for disadvantaged young people.
