Dropping out of school is a real social issue. More than 1 out of 10 young people in EU are school dropouts. Indeed, unemployment amongst young dropouts exceeds 40%. The EU has made the fight against dropping out one of its priorities and aims at reducing the drop-out rate to less than 10% by 2020.
This is what DROP’IN proposes: Formal and non-formal education must meet in order to fight against ESL and to motivate the pupils: creating an innovation by exploiting these two complementary environments. We mean by these motivating youngsters who dropped out, so they can go back to school and become again actor in their learning process.
In practical terms, this includes the introduction of non-formal methods in schools thanks to a partnership between associations, municipalities, universities, parents and schools where teachers and non-formal education experts lead innovation together and collaborate at each step of the project.
The transnational dimension of the project is essential: early school leaving is a reality in the partner countries where policies and experimentations are being implemented in order to reduce the ESL rate. The partnership allows an experimentation in various contexts to provide a suitable solution to European realities (rural environment, urban environment, migrant students...)

- To fight against unemployment due to this issue;
- To motivate youngsters to become actors in the society and to give them self-confidence;
