01.08.2019 - 30.06.2021
Young people living in either disadvantaged or remote communities are at risk of social and educational exclusion. Between the age of 16 and 25, young people are shaping their future with their education and career choices. Peer, family, as well as community pressure, all play an important role in this process.
The project "Making my future" connects youngsters with professionals from Estonia, Latvia, and Finland. The aim is to support the youngsters in shaping their future by learning new skills and by promoting self-esteem. Action learning - that is working together with young people by using socio-cultural and future guidance methods – enhances their potentials and engages them in small scale projects aimed at having an impact in their communities.
The process entails a community study method, the co-creation, and implementation of small-scale projects in the local communities and a virtual platform. The activities will be planned and implemented by the youngsters themselves. Results and methods will be free to use and will mostly be promoted to NGOs and educational institutes working with young people and communities.
