Project description

The aim of the project is to improve the access of children and youth from vulnerable groups to a wider range of extracurricular activities and thus improve their personal development and skills that increase their chances of success in society. The project promoter intends to fulfil the set goal by actively connecting smaller centres operating in the village of Prakovce and the village of Mníšek nad Hnilcom into one multifunctional centre. The interconnection is based on the principle of voluntary participation of young people, a partnership approach and mutual respect for all involved. The centre is to be organizationally, administratively, and operationally covered by the centre's coordinator in cooperation with two field social workers. Activities within the centre focus on the development of physical and mental abilities, increasing employment prospects, improving the infrastructure for youth work at the community level and anti-discrimination education. The project seeks to increase the interest of children and young people in actively participating in the educational process.
