description of organisation

Our organisation was established in 2006 with the aim of offering opportunities of participation to young people through activities of active citizenship according to CRC International Youth Convention and UDHR-CEDU Declaration of Human Rights’ principles. We constantly work to involve youth in voluntary projects, to make it active and protagonist in its environment, to improve the intergenerational relationship, to promote the solidarity concept as instrument of social well-being within the community. The specific aims of our projects are to develop skills, improve competencies, favour the ones with fewer opportunities, overcome individual growth obstacles with particular attention in the disability area, eliminate gender and ethnic stereotypes. Educational methods within a non-formal and informal context are preferred. The projects involve groups of children and young people aged 8 to 25 years old. We organise activities for the integration of immigrant young people together with their families, peer tutoring projects run by high school students towards children with learning difficulties and courses specialised in the introduction of new technologies (educational robotics, coding, ecc.), meetings on specific topics of citizenship as Social Day and collaborations with seminars and social activities. Moreover, we organise training courses for tutors involved in socio-educational activities and new technologies, exchange meeting in Italy and abroad, visits to regional, national and european institutions. To raise awareness on european topics, since 2012, we organise and take part to Erasmus+ Youth in Action projects.
