Purpose and goal
Newly arrived youth risk unequal working conditions in a segregated labor market, long-term unemployment and social exclusion. Through this project, Right To Play has developed an innovative method, the Right To Work method, which aims to increase opportunities for newly arrived youth towards sustainable and equal establishment in the labor market and in society. The project´s long term objective to contribute to long term system change in the labor market and to the SDG´s 5, 8 and 10 - has resulted in a model that shows potential for dissemination to both the private and public sector.
Expected results and effects
The project has resulted in a unique method that has proved relevant to the target group as well as the recipient side, together with a model that shows potential to contribute to a system change in the Swedish labor market by packaging and disseminating method to multiple sectors. The project has shown results and impact for the target group through long-term employment, increased employment opportunities and funding to implement the method in the Stockholm area. Business and municipality have validated the relevance of the method and several partnerships have been established.
Planned approach and implementation
The method has been designed and tested in close collaboration with the target group, as well as partners and other stakeholders. The method is a development from our results-generating work opportunity method, towards full-time employment after graduation. Impact measurement and evaluation have been conducted with test groups and stakeholders, which have provided good results as well as important insights for the project. We have also collected actors from all sectors that affect the conditions for sustainable employment, which has challenged the method to ensure its relevance.
