The Project "Future Stands in Youth Hands" is an initiative of a Partnership of NGOs from Portugal (Coordinator), Bulgaria, Cape Verde, Sao Tome and Principe and Brazil. The previous common experiences and desire to develop a strong action capable of involving the youngsters in an effective role of self-empowerment were determinant in the design of the proposal.Having a strong practical character, the project will involve the youngsters in International Intercultural Workshops under the subjects of "Youth Association and Socio-Cultural Stimulation", "Handicraft & Environment" and "Agro-food & Environment". The participants will then turn into peer educators within their own youth communities in national terms, demonstrating and multiplying their knowledge and skills. The multiplying effect foreseen is considerable, both at international as at national scope, providing significant results at the empowerment and emancipation levels.The Project will achieve some significant outputs, such as: a Project Storybook, a portfolio of the Project's activities, participants and their stories; a website and a blog also participated by everyone involved and leveraging the design, by the youth participants, of a Development Project's Framework; the creation of Youth Associations and of Networks of already existing Youth Associations; the promotion of income-generating initiatives based in the thematic subjects of the Project.It is expected a high impact on which concerns the increase in the self-esteem of the participants, new information, knowledge and awareness guaranteeing not only an enhancement on the participants' daily life but representing also a starting lever for a lifelong proactive attitude; equation of each other's own strategies for exiting social risks and vulnerability situations; greater sense of community belonging and of civic rights and duties; among many other.
