Description

Covid-19 outbreak had a strong impact on NEETs as it has worsened their condition, be it related to social, cultural, or economic disadvantage. The preventive security health measures increased youth isolation and decreased their participation in social initiatives, thus distancing them from further engagement in learning, training, and professional activities. The pandemic also increased the risk of becoming NEET, as it caused a considerable job loss and interruption of education programmes.
