The acronym NEET refers to those young people who are not engaged in training or work. These young people are at risk of exclusion and reduction of their social well-being. However, there are some projects to reactivate NEETs in various Italian contexts. This work aims to analyze the participants’ perception of some reactivation strategies for young NEETs used in two projects that revolve around the theme of ActionAid in the Milan area. The study was carried out through semi-structured interviews with 18 boys and girls between 15 and 24 years of age (M = 18.00; SD = 2.39), who participated in 3 reactivation projects. From this research work, the importance of providing NEETs with opportunities for growth and experimentation in "protected" contexts emerges. The final reflection underlines the importance of acting on several levels: sport or in any case recreational activities, the pres-ence of peers and competent adults.
