First Member States committed to implement ALMA initiative

18 May 2022EU news

At the “Good prospects for all young people” event organised by the Commission last week, more than half of Member States have committed to introduce the ALMA (‘Aim, Learn, Master, Achieve’) initiative in their countries. In addition, already eight Member States have pledged to set aside around €270 million for the ALMA under their European Social Fund (ESF+) programmes according to current estimates. More pledges are expected to follow, allowing young people from across Europe to benefit from this new initiative.

During the event, government representatives as well as representatives of the International Labour Organisation, social partners, companies, and public employment services discussed the challenges and opportunities related to youth employment. They also shared their views on how to make a success of the new social inclusion mobility programme, ALMA. Young people from Belgium, Czechia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain, and Sweden came to Brussels to share their stories on how they benefitted from programmes similar to ALMA, and the transformative effect it had on their lives.
