Sport & Art for Key Competences Improvement of Marginalised Young People

What we do


Sparkle addresses the gap in the non-formal education of marginalised youth in four EU countries, reflecting on the importance of extra-curricular aspects of the arts and sports as tools for improvement of the youth key competences required by the contemporary multicultural European society.

The project aims to facilitate the inclusion of young people in any disadvantaged situation (immigrants, refugees, NEETs, ESL, rural youth, ethnic minorities) and improve their employability.
