Youth Anti Radicalisation through SPort in Europe (YARSPE) is a 3-year-long (2020-2022) international project which main goal is to support youth in danger of radicalism through sport and education.
We use multidimensional and proactive approach towards radicalization and propose intersectional approach in fighting it. We think of young people in a positive way – we want to support their sense of belonging and identity by decreasing isolation and developing intercultural skills. We especially invite schools, sport clubs, and local youth organizations.
YARSPE is based on three main elements:
- Comparative research of countries context, including identifying endangered communities and already existing programs
- Strengthening key subjects and people working with youth, especially teachers, trainers, and educators, by trainings, workshops, and sharing new working tools
- Supporting endangered youth by organizing workshops that include sport activities and recreation
The project consortium:
- Fare network (The Netherlands) – leader
- Fundacja dla Wolności
- Inex SDA (Czech Republic)
- Szubjektív Értékek Alapítvány (Hungary)
- Cooperativa Sociale GEA Societa (Italy)
The quality of our work is ensured by two independent experts who monitor our activities on an ongoing basis, and at the end will present an evaluation report.
