The Voreppe Youth and community center (MJC-MPT) was created in 1954 to accomplish many interlocking goals such as Independence and personal development, an access for all to education and culture and the opportunity for each member to contribute to a more consolidated and just society. It creates social networks in a friendly positive welcoming atmosphere.
The MPT-MJC is geared towards today's youth. It works to breakdown social and economic barriers; to construct ongoing dialogue and exchange in the hopes of creating a lasting mutually nourishing relationship. This international exchange project of based on feeding this dynamic.
Despite intense media coverage, social networking we have come to the realization that certain youth find it difficult to see their themselves other than in their neighbourhood. Different impediments such as a lack of self esteem, linguistic difficulties, psychological hardships and traditional family culture make leaving even their neighbourhood a daring feat.
This exchange “ On dit Cap ? Cap Ensemble” will bring together 12 French and 12 Italian Youth aged 16-20 years of age within the department of Isere. Each group will be accompanied by two leaders in the hopes of reducing the difficulties of preforming an voluntary action for the Mobility Reduced.
After a certain introductory period the youth will participate in activities that will help them to discover the world of the Mobility Reduced such as their adapted environment, their interpretation of how they are perceived by others in the professional world. This will be be followed by an accompaniment of person of reduced mobility in their world of both professional and non professional situations. The hope is that youth that would not normally frequent each other find common ground and work on their inner confidence. This requires a great personal inner dialogue to overcome their fears and work towards an opening of worlds to include the other with all the apprehensions that involves including language and communication barriers and aptitudes.
This project is organized with participation of a Center specialized in the fostering of those of mobility reduced. The preparation time will depend on the exchange of each country.
