Specifically, it aims to intervene on the marginalisation and social exclusion phenomena, favoring active inclusion of disadvantaged young people aged 15-30 into labour market and consequently in society. This objective is achieved through a training path of participated involvement of senior expert volunteers in an intergenerational mentoring environment.
The path contributes to upskill youngsters and bring them closer to work introduction systems, sharpening their soft and employability skills, so countering their conditions of fragility and disadvantage; furthermore it helps to develop the contribution of senior population to society. More info….

OUR UNIQUE SELLING POINTS (USPs)
Unique expertise: The experts available to participate in CESES projects represent practitioners in virtually every industry and profession (over 20.000+ experts on roster).
Impact: CESES organizations contribute in a cost-efficient way to the achievement of the SDGs (economic value of volunteering)
Track record: CESES organizations have experience in several EU funding instruments. Ranging from AL-INVEST, EU SWITCH, Horizon2020, Erasmus+ and of course the NSA-LA programme.
Unique organization: EU coverage in members, and unique business model, CESES is the stand-alone professional volunteer service advisory instrument in Europe to focus on entrepreneurs in developing countries.
CESES launches in cooperation with PUM,
the EU Trade Initiative
CESES aims to contribute to raising standards of living in developing and emerging economies through voluntary assistance to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), business incubators and institutions like business service organisations and public agencies at local, national and regional level.
We believe that innovative partnerships, which include with volunteer organisations, tailored at the capacities and needs of MSMEs can boost EU ambition in the creation of decent jobs, and fighting poverty sustainably.
That said, a successful instrument like EU Aid Volunteers Initiative can be replicated to serve a similar challenging agenda of promoting an economic transformation that creates decent jobs, increases productive capacity, and fostering sustainable value chains and diversification, including sustainable industrialization in EU partner countries.
CESES members bring unique people, expertise and sector knowledge to boost businesses, industries and regions. Thus, combining resources and strengths of senior expert organizations, peer-to-peer knowledge transfer that conveys the best of European values and ingenuity.
