SOU and Prime Minister: School of Opportunities

SOU and Prime Minister: School of Opportunities

 

Together, thanks to community crowdfunding, we can help Farm Cultural Park combat educational poverty among young people in Favara and the province of Agrigento through their “School of Opportunities.” Upon reaching the goal through donations, the Community Foundation of Agrigento and Trapani will co-finance the project with a contribution equal to 70%.

Who is Farm Cultural Park

Farm Cultural Park is a cultural organization that settled in the historic center of Favara, in the province of Agrigento, 10 years ago, to promote social and cultural policies of significant change and upliftment of the local community and young people. Their approach is based on cultural exchange with artists, creatives, architects, journalists, and visitors from around the world, as well as educational activities related to urban planning, architecture, environment, community building, art, design, and food education involving children and adolescents.

The Supported Project

SOU and Prime Minister are educational activities aimed at children and adolescents in Favara and the province of Agrigento, with several editions already held at Farm Cultural Park. SOU is the School of Architecture for children, focusing on urban planning, architecture, environment, and community building. On the other hand, Prime Minister is the School of Politics for Young Women, a formative experience centered around the theme of politics. Over the years, more than 250 children have been involved in SOU, and 60 in Prime Minister.

This “School of Opportunities” aims to provide young participants, through workshops on architecture and active citizenship, with skills and knowledge that can bridge the social and cultural gap. Farm Cultural Park believes in each of them, in their talents and potential, and wants to invest in them.

Supporting the school means giving each of them the chance to make it, the opportunity to believe and hope for a better future. Only by investing in the new generations can we have more ethical, honest, and better citizens tomorrow.

The desire is to give young people a new and more attentive perspective on their lives, their possibilities, and their city through the development of creative skills; to build a possible future together.

The project “SOU and Prime Minister: School of Opportunities” has been selected in the “Inclusive Restart” call for proposals from the Community Foundation of Agrigento and Trapani. The Foundation believed in the impact of the initiative and will finance a part of the total project value with a donation contribution equal to 70%. For the remaining part, and therefore, for this project to be realized, Farm Cultural Park needs your support.

What Will Be Achieved with Your Help

Through the fundraising campaign promoted by Farm Cultural Park and the Community Foundation of Agrigento and Trapani on For Funding, they aim to raise 10,000 euros to:

Set up a space entirely dedicated to boys and girls and purchase tools and materials to enhance all educational experiences. This includes teaching materials, materials for refurbishing the space and creating models (e.g., lumber, screws, and various hardware materials, 3D pen tape, etc.), as well as electronic devices and software that will allow young people to work during workshops.

Additionally, expenses will be covered to have extraordinary tutors meet with the young people and accompany them during their educational journey. There will be approximately 20 guest tutors, including university professors, artists, and creatives.

The young people involved will be 30 per workshop, and with them, they will work on transferable skills, first and foremost, the ability to work in groups, but also the ability to speak in public, mediate, and listen.

They will be provided with everything necessary to accompany them during one of the most important periods of their lives, adolescence, giving them back the dimension of possibility.
