About The Project

The project “Social Inclusion in Action” aims to build the capacity of partner organizations for quality work with young people with fewer opporutunities, and to increase the quality of implemented youth projects, making them more accessible to young people with fewer opportunities and at the same time increase the involvement of such participants . With the achievement of the set aims, we plan to meet the specific needs of the partners , which are related to the difficulties of lack of specific knowledge, skills and experience in direct work and inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in the activities of the organizations. What we lack  as trainers and youth workers are short and clearly worded tips and simple rules that can be applied in practice without a person having prior experience of working wi th a specific target group, but through which inclusion can be made ea y and successful. On the other hand, i t could add value and enrich the realization of the whole project and it s effect and impact on the participants , partners s and the local community.
