The aim of FA-ST is to provide opportunities of empowerment and personal development to girls and young women (aged 18-30) affected by socioeconomic barriers (migrants background, weak family support, early school leavers), and inspire them to start a business in the STEM sector. The project will achieve this by: (i) identifying new engaging ways to present STEM to women; (ii) preparing and testing a non-formal learning program to support young women in increasing their skills and creating STEM start-ups; (iii) developing a platform to be used for displaying talents & business ideas; (iv) offering an innovative approach for YOUTH services , with the possibility for certification and skills assessment at EU level; (v) disseminating ongoing and fina outcomes; (vi) creating a strong and varied support network; and (vii) offering clearer information on how companies can support youth activities and contributing to better local services.
