Developed to prevent young people from dropping out of school and becoming unemployed, the four-years-project Or.Co digitsys won the tender “Fund for the tackling of educational poverty of children” by the Italian social entreprise Con I Bambini with 1,4 Mio. € funding. It provides 15 schools in Apulia and Basilicata with monitoring and individual guidance for children from primary school until secondary school, paying particular attention to children and young people who are in vulnerable socio-economic contexts and at risk of becoming NEET.
The first step is the Italian adaptation of the German App called "zukunftläuft", an application that young people can use to find out their talents and that gives them an insight on possible career or studies paths. The App will be ready for the school year 2019-2020.
The coordinating partner is the Consortium NOVA.
