Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
Disadvantaged young people in Kecskemét’s often do not complete their studies and do not feel that they could have an effect on their environment through their active participation. 45 young people will participate in a series of creative activities in the project – in video, music or dance groups. The three different trainings will run in parallel, so participants can choose their group according to their interests and skills. Besides the creative activities, the project will provide team building, community development, career orientation and tutoring, contributing to the successes of the participants in school and in their private lives, on an individual and on a team level. The high school volunteers have an important role in this project, since they can help as peers the youth participating in the program, and therefore will know them better, and will become more sensitive to their situation, their challenges and their successes.
