Events School to Work

Since 2014, SALAR has driven activities that call for closer cooperation among municipalities, public institutions and civil society organizations in the Baltic Sea Region. The aim has been to share information and initiate joint projects.

Flagship School to Work has two main types of activities. One type of them is development and support for members, and the second one is awareness raising about prevention of early school leaving, integration of young people in NEET situation, and integration of newly arrived refugees. In addition, Flagship facilitates cooperation among members to develop and implement project initiatives.
