Some fresh air, to breathe in
take a chance, have a dream
a safe ground where I can lay down and just count on what I’ve found
These are the lyrics of a song by Elisa an italian songwriter I like a lot (If I menage I will post the song as well). These few words express quite well the spirit with which I begin this course. I’m proud to be part of the group. I love being in touch with new people, exchanging ideas, knowledge and enthusiasm, sharing opinions, facts and dreams. That’s about the spirit.
Talking about opportunity: I’ve been working with and for young people, dealing with youth policies for the past 7 years but I’ve been a sort of observer/executer. I’m not satisfied anymore with this position. I really feel like taking an active role in youth policies, starting from my local environment. In my luggage there are practice, observation and a few experiences but I need more tools and more practice to put together my personal idea of youth policies. It’s time of engagement for me and this course seems to be a very good start.
