In this report we assess the effectiveness of support addressed to the NEET youth, i.e. people neither in employment nor in education, aged 15-29. The support was provided under Priority Axis I of the Operational Programme Knowledge Education Development. The report consists of three analyses: (1) the outcome indicator survey for which the situation of individuals is analysed 6 months after the end of participation in the Project - this is the second edition of this study; (2) the panel study of respondents who participated in the first indicator survey last year and were surveyed again 18 months after the end of participation in the Project; (3) the analysis of net effectiveness of support, which used administrative data from the unemployment register. The analyses show that the Project helps young people to find a job, compared to standard support offered by the PES. The support from the Program is particularly effective for people in a difficult situation in the labour market.
