It is 24month long project that focuses on sport activities and social inclusion of young people between the ages of 16 to 25. The project promotes the idea of the power of sport and how it can improve people’s quality of life. The presentation given by Paolo Menescardi outlined the main objectives of the project, which include making young people aware of their own potential as well as helping them gain more self-confidence. The project aims for young people to discover their talents, skills, and competences, while being parts of their communities and participating in local activities. The ultimate goal of the project is to build a bridge between professional orientation and active job search, to allow young people to access job opportunities or return to study and training. In this way, it will fill in some gaps left by formal educational institutions.
