EASY – Employability for Autistic Youth (2023 – 2025)

EASY is a three-year project that aims to create tools to support the development of employability skills for autistic people. This project brings together partners from various European countries and is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

About EASY

A significant percentage of autistic people are currently unemployed due to a lack of job-seeking training opportunities. The consortium wishes to offer guidance related to this journey by creating high-quality and targeted materials to support autistic youth by upskilling them. The project intends to focus on training youth workers so that they can better support autistic youth to develop their employability through informal and non-formal education.

Who We Are

EASY partners:

  • Luiss Libera Università Internazionale Degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli, Italy
  • Autism-Europe, Belgium
  • Kainotomia & Sia EE, Greece

In the EASY consortium, Autism-Europe contributes to developing tools to support autistic individuals in their career pursuits and is responsible for disseminating the project results across Europe.

EASY Goals

  • Improve the participating organisations’ capacity to support autistic people’s competitiveness and employability.
  • Increase the understanding of youth workers regarding the diverse abilities of their beneficiaries, with a specific focus on autistic youth in their learning groups.
  • Increase autistic youth’s level of employability and help them claim their rightful place in the local, national, and European workforce.
