When Svenska Youth League was started, the goal was to help marginalized youth in Europe grow holistically. One of the cornerstones of the organization was to empower the youth with a formal education to enable them to become productive citizens in the community.
Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) helps young people to learn a trade, enabling them to find a job or to start their own business. In this way they have the opportunity to earn a solid income and improve their living conditions. At the same time, the economic development and food security of their communities and countries benefit as well.
