On April 10th, we had our first IARS away day of the year, and it was an eventful one at that (spoiler alert it ends with a punch!) The team got together and took the opportunity to get to know one another and familiarise themselves with the projects that our project coordinators are working hard to deliver.

IARS has always aspired to be a leader in creating new knowledge and forming public and expert opinion on matters involving Youth, Justice and Equality. When Dr. Theo Gavrielides founded the Youth Voice Journal (YVJ) in 2009, his aim was to create a space that allowed academics and young people to publish their research on a peer-reviewed platform in the hopes that this collection of evidence-based research changes the way we view matters that affect us all.
The “DROP-In – Early School Leavers” new EU project seeks to establish alternative pathways for youth ESLs and drop outs, towards social inclusion and ultimately, the labour market.
A modern, integrated and holistic e-learning and networking platform will be available for young drop-outs and ESLs across Europe while, on the same time, new and innovative methodologies will be introduced in order to enhance the basic and transversal skills of the specific group.
The Youth partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe have launched a book titled Needles in haystacks. Finding a way forward for cross-sectoral youth policy, which dissects the meaning of cross-sectorality in youth policy.
