Rabat, 6 October 2015
The main objective of the Mediterranean New Chance (MedNC) programme is to provide young people who have been excluded from the labour market (dropouts from school and unemployed graduates) with innovative training and first business experience following the successful pedagogical model of the Second Chance School of Marseille (E2C).
The 4th MedNC Steering Committee will focus on developing synergies, exchanging experiences and sharing best practices among the local partners of the MedNC consortium. This meeting is co-organized by the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), in collaboration with the Office of Economic Cooperation for Mediterranean and Middle East (OCEMO), the Second Chance School of Marseille (E2C), the French Development Agency (AFD) and the Foundation of the Office Chérifien des Phosphates (OCP) – local partner of the project in Morocco.
The 3rd Steering Committee, which took place on 26 February 2015 at the UfMS premises in Barcelona, was the first regional meeting related to the project after MedNC was labelled by the UfM in December 2014. The meeting aimed at taking stock of the work performed so far and discussing the way to move forward. Among those participating in the meeting were representatives of three different schemes from Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia which are currently part of the MedNC Network. The programme has already been launched in Tunisia.
The agenda of the meeting will be published as soon as possible
