Aims & objectives

Develop and understand the concept of youngsters with disadvantages, understand the reasons behind the concept and its impacts in the society. Learn more about fewer opportunities, NEET youngsters, geographical and economical disadvantaged youth and minorities. Discuss how to work in order to overcome the challenges of these groups and how to overcome challenges for the society concerning this topic.
With this project we want to raise the quality of work with young people with fewer opportunities, by understanding their needs and working on challenges the society can bring to them. We want to work on how to increase youth level of integration and active participation in the community. Goal of the training is also to have real impact al local and national level by spreading the idea of the training course and its results and by conducting workshops after the project, for other NGOs, working with young people in their local environment or by leading activities for local excluded young people by using methods of non-formal education, learning through sport and by sport as an element of social inclusion. The project is also a response of constant changes in the society and the need to adapt to them. In the same way, there is a constant and fast change in the methods to work with youth. So, another objective will be to get to understand how to work with those changes through non-formal education methods.
