Social Action for Youth (Acción Social por la Juventud-ASJ) is a pioneering organisation which initiates and implements projects of positive social impact, with a focus on social inclusion (particularly in the fields of entrepreneurship, migrant integration, empowerment, sustainable development). ASJ is one of the leading institutions in Spain in the fields of social entrepreneurship and social innovation. It founded and manages Galicia Web Radio & Web TV, an educational centre and a community of organisations with cultural, environmental and social aims. We run now a national web radio network in which we involve more than 5000 young people that share their feelings about the main issues for youth like bullying, addition, social challenges, environment, sexual violence, health, etc.

It also runs the SOCIAL CAFE, a unique initiative aiming at the empowerment of people with fewer opportunities. Our main target groups/ beneficiaries are: youth, adults, elderly, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, NEET youth, women, people with fewer opportunities with and without disabilities.

ASJ runs exclusive Units on Social Entrepreneurship Support, VET and enterprise, Youth and adult learning, School Education, Migrant Integration, Research and Policy. Working closely with stakeholders across the country and Europe, we bring innovation, mainly through digital, online, and mobile tools, to enable the balance between knowledge (hard skills) and interpersonal skills and stimulate the employability of every individual. We develop and implement innovative projects and provide new tools and methods that meet social needs, create social relationships and form new collaborations to prevent social exclusion of vulnerable groups.

As accredited VET educational institution and adult education provider, ASJ delivers trainings and develops educational materials relevant to social inclusion, entrepreneurship, global education, including activities to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (eg., equal rights, peace and conflict resolution, responsible consumption and production, sustainable cities and communities etc).

ASJ has also an extensive expertise in the Quality Assurance process by designing questionnaires, conducting in-depth interviews and focus groups; in the last decade, it has been the internal or external evaluator for more than 25 European projects funded by the European Union, the Norwegian Fund or the Government of Spain and Galicia Regional Government.

The ASJ team has advanced degrees in education, school psychology, social and political sciences, law, entrepreneurship and business development as well as long experience in projects that tackle various social issues and provide new ideas towards sustainable solutions.

TARGET GROUP

Our main target groups/ beneficiaries are mainly people from vulnerable and marginalised groups, such as youth and adults, including women, NEET youth, elderly, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, people with mental and physical disabilities.

On the other side in this project we will involve adult educators in order to empower them and equip them with the skills needed to deliver trainings related to project management and EU funding. The participants of this project will be involved in the development of the handbook according to their needs, as well as the piloting phase. Also both, adults and adult educators will perform as multipliers disseminating the project results in their environments through their channels of communication.
