Huuma project’s goal is to strengthen the social inclusion and functional abilities of young people who are at risk of social exclusion through participation in the dance workshops. Both Finns and immigrants youth (16 – 29 years old) are the target group of the project’s activity, the goal is to reach to 225 participants. Dance workshops are held in Kuopio, Mikkeli, and Vantaa during 2019–2022.
Participation in the dance workshops strengthens young people’s ability to integrate into studies and working life and provides them with future skills. Participation in the project gives youth the possibility to develop their mental, physical and social abilities.
The role of Juvenia – a youth research and development center is to evaluate the project’s activity and results as well as support the development of the project.
