In contemporary societies engagement in the labour market and education represents not only a possibility for accumulating human, social and economic capital, but also an access to a number of activities, which all influence an individual’s skills, abilities and social standing. On the contrary, young people who are disengaged from the labour market and education are therefore more likely to be excluded from relationships and social networks created in the work or educational environment.

As an answer to the increasing number of early school leavers, many countries in the EU have developed Second Chance education programs in order to reintegrate children and youths in schools so that they can obtain minimum qualifications. Children enrolled in Second Chance programs are mostly underqualified early-school leavers, who have difficult access to employment and often lack basic social skills to adequately integrate into the society, thus making them more vulnerable and exposed to abuse, exploitation and mistreatment.
