Impact Assessment of the Youth Programme in Estonia 2000-2006


The YOUTH programme, the EU’s educational programme offering opportunities for young people between 15 and 25 to prove themselves, continue their self-development and take an active role in the society, was initiated in 2000. In 2006, the YOUTH programme was completed and the final impact assessment was announced. In Estonia, the programme assessment was carried out by the researchers of the Department of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Tartu. The assessment included a secondary analysis of materials relating to the programme, questionnaire-based Internet surveys, focus group interviews with the contact persons and the participants in the programme, and discussions with co-workers of the National Agency for the YOUTH programme.
