Project title: Dual-Track Careers for Para-Athletes (PARAdig)

Project duration: 01/01/2020 – 31/12/2021

It has for many years been a challenge for athletes in EU member states to combine their sports training, events and competitions with their need to receive an adequate education with a view to developing a sports career-end strategy for their subsequent employment, something informed by the EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes. With the greater focus on inclusion of people with a disability to also take up sportsand the improvements to accesibility and the design of sports facilities, there are ever greater numbers of people with disabilities taking up sports. These athletes face the same problem of timetabling their dual pursuits, but they often have several additional obstacles to deal with, such as dependency on specialized means of transport, and the extra time needed for every change of activity for a para-athlete.

“Dual-Track Careers for Para-Athletes” carries on from where the EU guidelines on Dual careers for Athletes leaves off in 2013 – pointing up the many problems faced by athletes with a disability, the urge and mandate to be inclusive notwtihstanding. The partnership will conduct important grass-root research of the ecosystem around the athlete with a disability, to find ways to get the system working more optimally, seeking ways to support families in the long term, and reporting in detail on findings. The research will produce another output – the Handbook of Best Practices for professionals all over the EU. Finally, a dedicated Virtual Learning Platform to orient the athlete transitioning to the workplace will be created to teach him/her all the basics of the Business and Entrepreneurship world.

The impacts we seek through implementation of this action are to help talented and elite athletes with disability to be placed in the direct spotlight of enquiry, and to examine the interactions of thos agencies and institutions around them who are in a position to assist them to attain their goals.

Erasmus+ Sport Small Collaborative Partnership

Title of the Project: Leveraging Education Through Sport for INnovative Changes Leading to Unification of Disability and Education – Let’s Include.

Project Dates: 01/01/2020 – 31/12/2021.

The project is a small collaborative partnership in the field of sport aimed to encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities of disabled persons. Particularly, the project goal is to showcase talents and challenge steorotypes about disability in different contexts and mostly outside sport organisations, such as schools, NGOs and local communities. Disabled young people often struggle to integrate in their communities and, as a result, they feel impaired comparing to their peers. According to the European Health and Integration Survey (2012), disabled people aged from 15 to 44 years old in Europe are 8.5%. This statistics highlighted that young people with disabilities reported unfair treatment because of their disability. Moreover, young people and people in general affected by disabilities undergo other kinds of challenges related, to some extent, to social inclusion.

The project aims to encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport

The applicant and the partners consider of the utmost importance the concept of “social inclusion in and through sport” that is in strong relationship with the Education Through Sport (ETS) methodology used by Mine Vaganti NGO in many projects. In ETS, sport elements are educational vehicles for improving social competences, soft skills and learning skills. Therefore, in ETS, sport can be a mean to educate to participation and it could be a vehicle for the promotion of a culture of inclusion of disabled persons.

The partners intend to realise a format of a one-day “Sport for Disability” Tournament designed for sport clubs at grassroots level, schools, NGOs and local communities in order to promote, foster and raise-awareness about the inclusion of disabled persons in and through sport.

The partners envisage to realise:

  1. Exchange of best practices
  2. Creation of a format training course
  3. Creation of a network of ambassadors
  4. Four “Sport for Disability” tournaments

Sport can be an effective mean to demonstrate the inner talents that every individual has behind its disability

Erasmus+ Sport Small Collaborative Partnerships

PROJECT DATES: 01/01/2020 – 31/12/2021

The project is a small collaborative partnership in the field of sport whose goal is to prevent radicalisation of young people encouraging social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport. 

The project partners will achieve this objective by creating a network of 8 ambassadors that will reach young people in events at the local level using the Education Through Sport (ETS) methodology. The ambassadors will constitute a transnational network for sport education against radicalisation strenghening the links between project partners and external stakeholders. A comprehensive research will provide the European state-of-the-art about current practices to prevent radicalisation in sport and through sport education. Afterwardss, the ambassadors will realise a set of awareness-raising actions online and sport events.

Radicalisation issues are a part of the prevention od and fight against violenve and intolerance that are part of the EU strategy on sport.

SPort Education Against Radicalisation (SPEAR) encourages social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport

The EU White Paper on Sport (2007) clearly stated the societal role of sport for prevention of and fight against violence and intolerance. The Communication from the Commission Developing the European Dimension in Sport (2011) declares that “racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance continue to pose problems in European sport, including at amateur level”. For this reason, the project activities target young people at grassroots level in order to have an impact on a wide audience using sport as a mean for education. These concepts were recalled by the EU Work Plan for Sport (2011-14) in its multi-annual strategic plan. The social value of sport was then reaffirmed because sport has a societal role.

As stated by the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN), young people are vulnerable to the phenomenon of radicalisation because they struggle with insecurity, identity and belonging

Fostering Entrepreneurial Mindset in Migrants through Education (FEMME)

KA205 – Strategic Partnerships for Youth 

“Fostering Entrepreneurial Mindset in Migrants through Education” (FEMME) will develop the entrepreneurial mindset and related hard/soft skills in first and second generation female youth migrants aged 18-25 potential entrepreneurs. 

Direct project target will be first and second generation youth female migrants aged 18-25 from partner countries suffering from socioeconomic marginalization, interested and motivated in becoming entrepreneurs, kick-starting and developing their entrepreneurial ideas. 

FEMME will develop the entrepreneurial mindset and related hard/soft skills in first and second generation female youth migrants aged 18-25 potential entrepreneurs

The project will also directly target youth workers from partners, interested in acquiring instruments of entrepreneurial support to youth female migrants. Indirect project target is the wider audience of disadvantaged migrant female youths in partner countries and Europe as well as the youth operators and organizations who work with the foregoing target either specifically or as a subset of the wider youth population. The project meets the challenge of enhancing the entrepreneurial spirit and education of young people in the EU, in order to increase business creation rates and provide alternative pathways of employability and personal fulfilment to the youth, with a particular focus on female youngsters. 

According to the latest statistical evidence of the EC (see for/women_en), the challenge of female entrepreneurial participation is substantial, with women representing 52% of the total European population, but only 34.4% of the EU self-employed and 30% of startuppers. 

European societies are also at the center of migration and refugee flows dynamics as well as of the related challenge of integrating vast masses of refugees, many of whom are women. UNHCR data quantify in 350,000 individuals the number of third nationals who crossed the Mediterranean Sea in 2016 alone. The aforementioned trend is already at play, and will be ever more in the future, in orienting the evolution of European societies in a multicultural perspective. Nowadays, the overall population of Europe is composed of non-nationals for up to the 5%. 

Far from representing a hindrance to the development of the hosting societies, migrants have recurrently proven to provide an added value to socioeconomic growth by providing an additional pool of entrepreneurial motivation and potential. As highlighted by the EU “Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan”, if Europe is to make the most of the opportunities provided by an ever developing and challenging global environment, entrepreneurship is to be made the growth engine of the European economy, which “needs a thorough, far-reaching cultural change”. The Action Plan also points out that migrants represent a valuable component in the foregoing evolution, due to their higher rates of business creation as compared with nationals, yet “Notwithstanding that migrants have higher business creation rates than the rest of the population they fail more due to a lack of information, knowledge and language skills”. Female migrants are motivated to become entrepreneurs but face a set of barriers related to access to training, business support services, language barriers, inadequate management and marketing skills. 

They also represent particularly vulnerable targets in that they compound these barriers with gender disadvantage. The project aims at addressing the challenges identified above by means of providing young female migrants in possession of entrepreneurial motivation with the attitudes and skills needed to start-up and grow their own start-ups.  

FEMME will deliver on this aim through the following: 

– Research for the identification of the training needs of female youth migrant entrepreneurs and their connection with the existing educational offer, carried out by a combination of desk research and surveying. 

– Guide for female migrant entrepreneurs integrating methodologies of self-learning supporting them in giving shape to and developing their entrepreneurial ideas. The Guide will be tested and reviewed in a specific educational mobility with female migrant prospective entrepreneurs. A following local session of Piloting will allow participants to further test the Guide as a tool of concrete orientation in the establishment and development of their own businesses. 

– Training Toolkit for Trainers. The Toolkit will integrate guidelines and methods of NFE tailored to the needs of youth workers willing to implement educational programmes to empower prospective female migrant entrepreneurs. 

– Online modules and Web Platform. Partners will produce a specific Web Platform with integrated elearning modules in multiple languages targeted at an audience of female youth migrants prospective entrepreneurs in Europe. The modules will provide the target with useful information and exercises supporting them in the design and development of their own entrepreneurial ideas. 

Testing of Toolkit and Manual will be delivered in a mobility of youth workers.

Erasmus+ Key Action 2 – KA205 – Strategic Partnership in the youth sector

YOUNG – Youth Organizations United for Growth

PROJECT DATES: 01/06/2019 – 31/05/2021

Youth Organizations United for Growth” (YOUNG) is a Strategic Partnership project of 24 months, involving 2 NGOs from Denmark and Italy and 1 educational institution from Croatia, aimed at supporting the social inclusion and personal development of youth migrants as well as raising empathic and inclusive behavior among native youths. 

The employment of third-country nationals in the public sector promotes diversity in society and fosters integration. According to the 2015 OECD report on indicators of migrant integration, it gives the immigrant community greater visibility, showing the private sector the way and improving the way the host society perceives them in the long term (European Union for Fundamental Rights  Report Together in the EU  promoting the participation of migrants and their descendent – 2017). In this respect, the problems faced by first generation migrant youth are particularly severe and wide-ranging, as is their overall socio-economic vulnerability. Many youth migrants in European countries face marginalization and social exclusion in due to belonging to fragile components of the wider youth population. These youngsters face substantial inequality with their peers in education, employability, personal development, civic and social participation, compounding them with the cultural and often linguistic barriers typical of migrants. At the same time native youths suffering from the Mass and Social Media influence are hampered in developing tolerance, empathy and inclusive behaviour towards youth migrants YOUNG project aim at tackling both abovementioned issues through a comprehensive strategy involving both target group. Drawing inspiration from the Danish Red Croos Fast track to employment programme in which Asylum seekers had the possibility to meet a volunteer buddy from the host community, YOUNG will apply this best practice in its envisaged learning process, establishing a Buddy system between native and migrant youths involved in the Mobilities and in overall project activities. 

The project aims at supporting the social inclusion and personal development of youth migrants as well as raising empathic and inclusive behavior among native youths.

Project objectives are: 

– Fostering empowerment and inclusion of first generation migrant youngsters through international mobilities, peer-interaction and Non Formal Education applied to Employability and Entrepreneurial Education and Intercultural Competences Pathway. 

– Raising awareness and develop civic sense, empathy and tolerance among native youths towards young migrants peers. 

– Raise awareness among policy-makers, NGOs, stakeholders and the general public about the role of youth NGOs and non-formal learning as active actors in bridging the gap left from the educational system towards the personal development of first generation migrants as well as the fostering social and cultural interaction between native and migrant youths. 

– Providing best practices, knowledge and concrete toolkit among NGOs from different European countries in order to improve professionalism of youth workers, variety and quality of educational activities delivered with a view to enhancing quality and effectiveness of youth work in Europe. 

Tangible Results: 

– 1 Research Report containing statistics and needs regarding first generation migrant youths in matter of social inclusion and integration in the labour market in participating partner countries. 

– 1 Handbook containing the instructions on how to establish a buddy system between native and first generation migrant youth. 

– 1 Manual containing existent best practices on fostering access and integration to the labour market of first generation migrant youth and educational toolkit based on NFE applied to Employability and Entrepreneurial Education and Intercultural Competences Pathway. 

– 1 Blog created by the participants during the first mobility which will be the diary of their shared educational learning journey.  

The project is expected to have a significant impact on participants in emotional, relational and educational terms. Interacting with native peers as buddies and young people from different European countries facing the same challenges and obstacles in a playful and participatory atmosphere, participants will improve their awareness of mutually respectful cooperation, exchange of views, visions and values. 

At the same time, participating in educational initiatives provided through targeted methodologies that offer young participants a chance to improve their self-esteem, confidence in oneself, sense of creativity, responsibility, teamwork skills, orientation to learning in both formal and non-formal contexts, as well as attitudes of active participation and involvement that will be able to incorporate into educational, social and civil contexts. 

Long-term benefit it is provided by participants implementation of local activities acting as Multiplier Ambassadors. Furthermore partners will engage themselves in promote the contents and methodologies produced during the project in order to be used by a large spectrum of stakeholders.
