The Pro Youth -project (2021-2023) is a strategic partnership project of Erasmus+ program, in which three partner countries are cooperating: Finland, Italy and Jordan. The Pro Youth -project develops working methods to support young people who are experiencing honor related violence or the threat of it. The target groups are the professionals and authorities working with the youth as well as the youth itself. The methods are developed for the use of professionals working with the youth, such as social workers, youth workers and the police. In addition, the project is creating a tool for the youth to find help and support easier than before, when they are facing honor-related conflict or violence.
