Civic education is an important yet sometimes overlooked vehicle for integrating migrants into the labour market, especially unaccompanied minors who are transitioning into adulthood. To promote their entry into their new country's work force in a manner which is mutually beneficial to them and their host communities, the Civilhood project will train professionals engaged in their support in the 5 participating Member States (Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Slovenia and Austria) to provide them with the civic skills necessary. The project is designed to promote the treatment of unaccompanied minors as rights-holders, in accordance with their best interests as children, it is planned to run for 24 months and is an AMIF co funded project.
