It aims also at gathering views concerning the YFEJ ex-post evaluation questions (i.e. relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence, complementarity and EU added value, sustainability, impact and organisation/governance of the action) and any possible developments for the future.

This consultation is particularly directed towards the following stakeholders:  

  • EU/EEA-level stakeholders: social partners, youth organisations (e.g. European Youth Forum), researchers/academics and think-tanks;
  • National level stakeholders: Ministries/regional authorities responsible for youth employment, employers (SMEs in particular), public and private employment services (including EURES and YFEJ implementers), national level social partners, researchers/academics and think-tanks, ESF Managing Authorities or Intermediary Bodies, national youth organisations and NGOs (i.e. members of the European Youth Forum);
  • Individuals: young people under 35;

Other EU/EEA and national stakeholders: training organisations, non-governmental organisations, municipalities, chambers of commerce, intermediary organisations managing national or EU-funded mobility programmes or schemes (e.g. Erasmus + National Agencies) and other individual citizens.
