At the moment there is a noticeable lack of courses and resources for youth organizations and youth workers on Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and how to include young people with ASD in their activities. The project is well-aligned with the objective “Inclusion and diversity in all fields of education, training, youth and sport” as well as the objectives “Increasing quality, innovation and recognition of youth work” and “Strengthening the employability of young people”.
This project will contribute to their inclusion in youth activities by equipping youth workers and organizations in order to develop youth programs that can accept people with ASD. At the same time, this is an excellent opportunity for youth workers to develop their skills and capacities and increase the quality of their services towards vulnerable populations, as the project targets directly them and aims to train them on ASD and how to manage it. Lastly, the beneficiaries of the
project, young people with ASD, will have the chance to develop soft skills and the self confidence needed, which in turn will set the foundations for the future employability and for them to live an independent and happy life.
