ENGSO Youth released the new #SK4YS handbook

“Skills for You(th) through Sport” (SK4YS) is a transnational initiative of European sport, youth organisations and educational institutions to raise awareness on soft skills and competences gained through sport practice and to build capacity of these organisations to implement sport based employment programmes.

The recently published #SK4YS toolkit aims to raise awareness on the transferable skills that sport-based educational activities can develop for young people - especially those not in employment, education or training. The handbook is preliminarily addressing youth and sport organisations that aim to deliver programmes that can boost certain soft skills of youngsters from fewer opportunities backgrounds.

Besides these activities, ENGSO Youth joined the #BeActive campaign in September, held a Committee meeting in Gdanks, Poland, in October, and is working hard to soon release another handbook – the Sport for Sustainable Development toolkit.
