Read more about the support needed for NEETs in Bulgaria (among other Eastern European countries) in the UNICEF report.

 

Some funded training programme for NEETs where we include positive psychology to see will be:
Neue Wege – New Ways (into the labour market): During face to face training and group work focusing on work life oriented contents

the training also offers individual support services (like learning support, counselling and vocational career guidance, individual advice

and help in finding the reentry into the labour market) for NEETs who belong to the group of young adults without job.
