The SEE-ME project is about preventing young people in the Baltic Sea region from leaving school early.
Several countries in the Baltic Sea region are experiencing high youth unemployment. This is partly because young people are leaving school early. Early school leavers often belong to disadvantaged groups in society, such as Roma and migrant groups. Today, little is known about how to work with young people from disadvantaged groups to keep them in school.
The SEE-ME project wants to reduce the number of early school leavers in the Baltic Sea region by focusing on Roma and migrant youth. It claims that in the EU there is plenty of knowledge on early school leavers. However, this knowledge has not been collected and spread to the Baltic Sea region. The project will establish a network of students, teachers and researchers through which knowledge on the topic is shared. A collaboration between the network and already existing cross-country projects, such as Erasmus, will be established. Lastly, a report on best practices to keep young people in school will be prepared. The report will contain useful information on how to work with disadvantaged groups to keep them in school.
