PAClife – Physical and Cultural Activity for Lifeskills Development

Supporting young migrants and disadvantaged young people to increase resilience through physical and cultural activities. 

Grant Agreement Number: 2019-2-UK01-KA205-062336

Funded by: Erasmus+        Duration: 01/01/2020-31/12/2021

  


Challenge

Physical and cultural activities including play, dance and sport can develop a range of life skills. This is because these activities require: problem solving; self/time management; the ability to meet deadlines and/or challenges; personal and collective goal setting/achievement; communication; teamwork. Furthermore, life skills increase young people’s well-being and help them be active and productive members of their communities, improving at the same time their economic outcomes. Within this context, life skills can enhance migrants’ and disadvantaged young people’s social inclusion and to improve their life conditions.

Innovation

By promoting life skills to young migrants and disadvantaged young people through the participation in physical and cultural activities, PAClife aims at increasing their resilience and enhancing their social inclusion.

Action

The Training Program aims at improving the capacity of low-skilled/low qualified migrants and disadvantaged young people on how to use cultural and physical activities, including dance, play, sport, as a tool for building their own civic and social competences.

The young people will be involved in volunteer placements in organizations providing physical and cultural activities. This will allow them to refine their skills acquired from the training programme. The participation in these voluntary placements, as well as the interaction with their peers will enhance life skills of young people, increasing thus their social, cultural inclusion and positive adaptation.
