Stimulating Young people’s resilience
By giving the young generation the possibility to access the ‘Cross Cultures Future Sport Leadership Education’ we provide the participants opportunities to learn, build network and gain hands-on experience of how to communicate and operationalize their ideas and visions for the future.
Cross Cultures consider youth as a valuable resource for all communities and a potential powerful source of change whose energy and skills need to be harnessed. Being the next generation, which is expected to take over in rebuilding and developing post-conflict societies, they should be given the best opportunities to learn, build network and express their views and ideas for the future. In order to become such an active resource for their communities and countries, young women and men need to learn how to be creative and visionary, and they need to gain their own experiences of civic engagement and democratic participation. Furthermore, young people’s resilience is strengthened, when they gain hands-on experience of how to communicate and operationalize their ideas and visions for society, and when they are given the opportunity to be positive role models as volunteers, coaches and assistant coaches for other young people and for children.
