Project description
Young people from smaller towns and villages in Poland do not feel motivated to undertake any social activities. They are often convinced that the place they live in is worse than a big town (Equalizing Educational Opportunities – Practical Guide 2011). That is why they do not get involved in the life of their local communities, they do not see the value of taking initiatives. What is more, they are often afraid of working with and being assessed by adults. According to the report
Youth 2011, young people do not cooperate with adults because they are afraid of the adults moralizing, criticising and imposing of ideas.
The aim of the project was to increase the impact of secondary schools students on their environment. Thanks to the project implementation, 18 students from the Długosiodło municipality and 15 students from the Sadowne municipality, supported by 57 adults from their respective municipalities, were prepared for developing and implementing activities addressed to their local communities.
42 young people, cooperating with 10 adults, developed and implemented activities already during the project implementation.
A cycle of workshops and developmental activities were conducted for the youth and adults and then such methods as applied drama and tutoring were used for intergenerational groups.
Additionally, a study on how the drama method can impact the development of citizenship was conducted and the report was published.
The project beneficiaries were secondary schools students from Sadowe and Długosiodło municipalities in the Mazovian voivodship.
The association invited Askorun ehf, an organization from Iceland, to cooperate on including experiential learning into project development.
