The project “EUinAid – Youth involved in First Aid” developed a transnational network and common approach to First Aid practice. It is based on youth engagement to promote social inclusion and well-being of young people with fewer opportunities. EUinAid aimed to improve skills and competences of young people from 18 to 25, especially those who are not in education, employment or training (NEETs) and youth workers in the field of Health Assistance. The project directed at developing and testing an innovative cross-border approach to first aid practice and training at EU level. It fosters the assessment of transversal skills and supports the validation of non-formal learning and its permeability with formal education pathways. JOIN member S.O.G.IT. Italy, section of Settimo Torinese lead the project in collaboration with Johanniter Austria, Johannita Hungary, and 3 other organisations:
