SPIN aims to promote the cooperation and the creation of collaborative partnerships in the sport field, by promoting synergies between youth policies and sports with/among local, regional, national, international stakeholders. SPIN will involve in the project 14 private and public bodies from 7 countries to develop and test training and educational program of social inclusion for young people with fewer opportunities through their involvement in sports.
SPIN context: challenge of social integration of youth at the very real risk of permanent exclusion dwelling in situations of social disadvantage and/ or in foster care at the Juvenile Justice Services.The complexity of the issues affecting young people from the target group, requires the preparation of methodologies and tools for social integration arising from the collaborative strategy.
SPIN intends to address the need of an integrative model for young people in the most difficult situations, providing the opportunity to undertake the path of social reintegration through sports in an atmosphere of friendship, mutual support and security. The activities are designed to be repeatable over time, in different EU contexts and the establishment of agreements with relevant stakeholders, will inform the actors of the local context in relation to the project and the methodology.
SPIN activities: initial/final conferences; thematic tables; development/implementation of sport modules for social inclusion for youth of target groups, awareness raising and networking workshops, elaboration of Recommendations Manual.
SPIN operates foreseeing the impact: in terms of establishing long-lasting partnership in the sport and social inclusion fields; on policy makers by elaborating program for social inclusion through sports for youth from target groups; in terms of social welfare by providing innovative functional program to tackle the risk of permanent exclusion for young people of target groups.
