Socially disadvantaged also need to go abroad

The battle against youth unemployment should also be aimed at making it possible for socially disadvantaged youths to acquire experience abroad, the two general secretaries of the Franco-German Youth Office demand in the left-wing daily taz, pointing out that the biggest challenge is "to reach out to youths who because of their social background and level of education are at a disadvantage on the labour market. Their greatest obstacle is that they don't even consider seeking employment elsewhere in Europe. So it's important to raise their awareness of the possibilities and to ensure that the skills acquired through spending time abroad receive formal recognition. This recognition could also serve to convince those who haven't dared make such a move so far, thus improving their employability. ... Acquiring skills in moving around outside one's own country used to be part and parcel of a person's education in the times of the 'wayfarers'. Today the priority must be to revive the opportunities for acquiring mobility experience."
