Information on the JUMP Project

The project “Jump: Juggling Motherhood and Profession” is an EU funded project under Erasmus+ KA2 - Strategic Partnerships for adults. JUMP has been developed to respond to unskilled mothers’ request of help to find a job, social professionals working in public and private establishments need to set up complex and multilayered methods of social intervention: in first place they need to be able to rely on innovative practices capable to address the social/emotional/relational roots of the unskilled mothers’ unemployment or inactivity challenges.

The partnership focuses on Southern Europe (I, ES, GR) and one South-Eastern European country (HR) and has an impressive curricula of working with women employability, training and assistance.

  • it will create a transnational learning network of social professionals, experts and universities from JUMP countries that can allow the sharing and experimenting of innovative practices of social support, coaching and guidance (first phase);
  • it will provide groups of fragile mothers from JUMP countries with innovative methods of social support tailored on their complex conciliation’s needs to increase their employability (second phase).

Objectives of JUMP’s actions

  • To increase social professionals’ capacity to frame help’s requests within beneficiaries' social/cultural/relational roots;
  • to provide social professionals with the tools necessary to read the complexity of women work-family balance situation, also through an understanding of conciliation that goes beyond the mere provision of family care services;
  • to design, test and share innovative pedagogical methods of women guidance and empowerment across the JUMP partners, to tackle the issues related to work-family balance, parenthood practi- ces, relational inclusion, employability.
