PROJECTS

PARENTS UNITED
Parents involvement in the sexual education of children with Disabilities

Parents United Logo.png

Parents United project is a 24-month project with 5 partners from 5 countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy, France, and Spain) that aim to promote holistic sexuality education, capable of providing scientific information, fostering the development of behaviours matured from the information learned and attitudes favourable to building just societies.

In fact, the project wants to develop parents' knowledge and communication skills and to change their beliefs, attitudes, and behaviour towards sex education with their children to assess comfortable behaviour and interaction patterns with their children and to avoid neglecting opportunities for children with disabilities to achieve greater autonomy and quality behavioural development.

MOVE & ACT

logo-maa-www2.png

Due to the social distance and isolation that has occurred over the past two years as a result of the pandemic, many young people have sought to stay in touch with other peers and have used art and digital technologies as a means to interact and express themselves.  

In addition, the often precarious nature of creative work has made artists and cultural professionals particularly vulnerable to the economic surges triggered by the pandemic. Thus the need for new entrepreneurial ventures has emerged.
The project aims at 3 objectives:
1. Develop artistic and digital skills for young people living in marginalized conditions.
2. Creation of a youth network that provides entrepreneurial tools, develops a sense of belonging and self-esteem, common interest in visual arts

3. Providing opportunities for youth to have their voices heard on personal or community challenges through participation in a competition. 

MAKE IT WORK:

The MAKE IT WORK project will develop project results – tools and training materials – designed to provide access to employment regulations in an inclusive and accessible way for d/Deaf young job seekers. With the products of the project, d/Deaf young job seekers will be able to access employment information in sign language and accessible written forms to use in their daily working lives.

 

They will have digital resources in sign language at their fingertips which they can refer to in their own time, replay and repeat, and consult without outside help – in other words, they can use the project outputs to exercise self-determination in their employment relationships and working lives. At the same time, provide training and materials for a youth workers to give them the instrument to support the social and professional inclusion of the young d/Deaf job seeker.

The “Youth Social Entrepreneurs Potential” project aims to enable young people, who want to develop their business ideas while generating a positive “return to society”, to develop their social entrepreneurship skills and critical thinking. It also focuses on helping them to acquire the required competences to identify and value the resources of their local cultural and natural heritage.

 

During the whole duration of the project, the main objectives are:

  • Promote a common understanding of the field of social entrepreneurship by exploring different concepts, formats, and models of social entrepreneurship

  • Facilitate the transfer of good practices and ideas from social enterprises, strengthen community spirit and increase the motivation of young people to participate in society by creating a set of existing local social entrepreneurship initiatives

  • Helping young people, regardless their backgrounds, statuses or educational levels, to learn how they can detect local needs and use their cultural and environmental heritage to launch a social initiative. This will be achieved by creating a European training methodology for Youth (modules, training, learning materials)

  • Developing young people’s entrepreneurial skills to identify resources and business opportunities within the local community and enhance cultural heritage, social and environmental skills, as well as the basic and cross-cutting skills, language and numerical skills
