Projeto ADN - Mostra do que és feito (DNA Project)
Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Feb 28, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The ADN/DNA project involves over 1100 young people, most of them young people with fewer opportunities. This is a project of 3 continents (Turkey , Portugal , Cape Verde and Italy) with the aim of creating the first World Network of Youth Friendly Cities. At the same time we will be able to reduce school leaving and youth unemployment , particularly amongst young people from minorities , disabled or from the most disadvantaged backgrounds through a participatory learning process. Each youngster will redesign his life plan based on life goals and realistic goals set by them. On the other hand we also intend to combat the phenomena of child labor and to promote the dynamics of participatory democracy as a means of promoting youth participation among young people at risk through the birth of informal youth groups and youth associations. For this we will carry out a non- formal education process which is based on commitment to a more inclusive growth through the Youth Friendly City (YFC) Network , composed of spaces IDEAS . This structure will create a support structure for young people to combat poverty and marginalization .The basic metodologie of each IDEAS shall be the method of Clans. To every young integrating the IDEAS will be awarded a Master ( an animator or more experienced youth worker ) and the title of young Apprentice . The IDEAS space that every youngster will integrate will be is Clan, and like hapens in every Clan , the apprentice will evolve by degrees , until the status of Master. At this time he takes the place of Master and he also accepts new apprentices as they had done with him initially. After Apprentice, when the youngster thinks his prepared to ascend he may ask his Master and Clan. They will have 3 levels of status: Apprentice: Master Apprentice and finally the status of Master, with the responsibility of directing their own apprentices and building a new group.We will have an initial network of eight spaces. With time it will appear new Ideas Spaces with the growing of new masters and new local partners . The IDEAS will have a dual function . They will be Youth Resource Centres for the Promotion of Social Entrepreneurship and birth of informal youth groups or youth organizations . On the other side they will be Ludical Laboratories of new methodologies for inclusive non-formal education, where young people will be involved key stakeholders , supported by the youth workers of the project .We will have a strong work of international cooperation through AND Summits that will promote the exchange of good practices and articulation of action plans of all partners . This work will be complemented by international advertising campaigns and dissemination activities in all countries with initiatives that will reach more than 2,000 young people. In the end of the project the YFC web platform, new pedagogical tools e dozens of new youth associations and informal groups will be a reality that will carry on DNA and the YFC net.
