Description

The project has a twofold objective. On the one hand, the goal is to improve the employability and physical and mental health of young people from deprived backgrounds. On the other hand, to promote value education, students will act as mentors and instructors in different activities to learn themselves. For that purpose, two types of integrated activities are proposed:

Sports activities that favour physical and mental health. Students will be coordinated by the professors from the INEF (The Faculty of Sciences for Physical Activity and Sport), and they include two complementary blocks. First, the design, implementation and monitoring of individual training programmes to foster self-esteem and personal care. Second, games and innovative team sports (i. e., Kinball, Tchoukball) to develop communication and teamwork skills.
Technological training workshops to promote their self-esteem and favour their integration into the employment market. It will be focused on Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu/) with an introduction to video game programming. Besides, it also includes activities to improve communication skills within social networks for job search, with guidelines for the development of content and a professional profile.
In any case, a group of professors will be responsible for these activities, coordinating and providing all the necessary support. It is planned to use an area within the UPM facilities for the participants to study and work, it may be a motivating element for them to get involved. At the end, they will receive a diploma during an academic ceremony to which families will be invited. The estimated duration will be between 80-100 hours.
