LLI-282 Social inclusion and youth empowerment in Panevezys and Kuldiga (Youth empowerment)
01.03.2018 - 30.08.2019
ERDF Financing: 121 352.08 EUR
A common challenge in Latvian and Lithuanian municipalities is to motivate young people and to help them to improve their practical skills and involve them in educational, social and cultural activities. This is especially challenging in case of youth at risk– young people from socially deprived families, early school dropouts, youngsters with addictions or criminal records.
The objective of the project is to promote social inclusion of youth at risk in Kuldiga and Panevezys.
Within the project youth centres in Panevezys and Kuldiga will be equipped with artistic tools as well as musical instruments and equipment for recording studio. Three different creative workshops (two to five days long each) will be organized in Kuldiga and Panevezys youth centres and it is expected that in total 120 young people will benefit from the project activities. Methodological material will be developed and made available for organisations working with youth in the Programme territory.
As a result of the project more youth at risk both living in towns as well as rural areas will benefit from more accessible and efficient social inclusion measures and improved services at youth centres
