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: (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 third edition of this study; (2) a CATI survey including additional information on the Programme participants, including the quality of the new jobs, gender differences in outcomes or regional differences. Our results indicate large gender gaps, especially in the context of self-employment, large differences across voivodeships and poviats and changes in the reasons for not taking up employment among those who remained non-employed.
