These youngsters come from very difficult backgrounds and involving them in activities such as set construction, making costumes, and acting, will occupy their leisure times preventing them from following unheathy habits.

We are also cooperating with local associations involving their youngsters and children in our theater shows.
2) Ecological Activities:
Project Green Steps is one of them. This project aims to fight social apathy and also the lack of active participation of young people and community in general, in environmental issues. We want our message to reach as many people as possible, and that about 40 youth to participate actively in the activities

c)Visiting landfills in order to raise awareness for the overproduction of waste.

e) Workshop about reuse and recycling old objects (trash) in order to give them new life.
f)An exhibition with objects done on the workshop.
3) Mobility projects:
The EVS volunteers are going to promote the Erasmus plus programme, organizing youth exchanges and training courses, giving to our local youngsters with less oportunities, the chance to have an experience abroad. This will help them grow personally and to develop some technical skills. Volunteers will help on the preparation of the participants.

Involving youth and volunteers on this phase them in these activities will improve their quality of work, develop their logistic skills, increase their particpation in civic life and encourage them doing their own community projects.

For the local festivity, we were challenged by the local city hall to decorate a street of Câmara de Lobos for Saint Peter’s Day. We’ll involve local youth on the preparation and instalation of the next summer decoration and contribute for a sense of beloging on the community facilitating inclusion of people with fewer opportunities.
