The YES-SI (Youth Empowerment for Social Inclusion) project aims to empower young people, bringing them together, making them aware of their capacity to change their circumstances and those of their communities and realizing their own changemaker
projects. YES-SI intends to raise awareness among young people of their powers and potentialities in order to prompt them to act both for their personal and collective development through social and civic innovation directly supporting their community needs.
The project aims to achieve the following objectives:
Engage young people by involving them in challenging activities that stretch their abilities, imagination and view of the world and the part they can play in it.
Connect young people in networks they would otherwise not know of, that give them a platform for their own ideas, their own aspirations and allow them to say what sort of world they want to live in.
Empower them with new skills and knowledge, the experience of creating real change, become owners of the social capital they create, and start to realise the value of their own ideas.
