The AEF JUVENTUD project is a multilateral strategic partnership Exchange of Good Practices, which involves six partners from 5 different European countries (Spain, Italy, Portugal, Malta and Romania). AEF Juventud, will involve 500 young people between 14 and 19 years old through a classroom project work.

At European Level 9 out of 10 adolescents acknowledge having had some kind of psychological pressure on their partner.
Last year almost 500 girls under the age of 18 were abused and resorted to precautionary measures or some type of protection order. Bullying cases have also increased, with decisions, in many cases, fatal for the victim. These data are alarming, in most cases due to educational, social and cultural misinformation about how to deal with a loving relationship.
Following the EU 2020 strategy, which has among its main objectives the fight against violence, we want to take an important step to prevent youth violence by involving schools, institutes and educational centers to inform, teach and above all, educate on this issue.
Our main priority is “Social Inclusion” related to the field of training and youth, the project will address education and non-formal training and will focus on social development and civic awareness.
In accordance with the sectorial priority “Promoting a high-quality work in the field of youth”, AEF JUVENTUD will contribute to promote inter-sectorial cooperation between entities and youth workers, including higher education institutions, public institutions, small businesses and NGOs;
Last but no least “Promote empowerment” by promoting diversity, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, the common values of freedom, tolerance and respect.
“Youth Support for a stronger Europe, joining together against gender violence“ seeks the general objective of reducing youth violence in relationships and as specific objectives:
