The ЯAPKOUR project aims to create a set of tools and a methodology composed of theoretical and practical activities, which lead to the interaction and integration of young traceurs (parkour practitioners) and young rappers. A methodology that integrates the creativity of young people to establish an educational path that reinforces the valorization of urban spaces, creativity, and physical-sports activity. The project assumes a international value, thanks to the partnerships established (Portugal, France, and Italy). Through the use of rap and parkour, the specific objectives of the project are:
- develop effective methods to reach marginalized youngsters, promoting inclusion, emancipation, participation, and active citizenship of youngsters with fewer opportunities and at risk of social exclusion,
- promote first-rate social/educational activities aimed at supporting the capacities and professional development of the educators and the youth workers to improve the learning of those that come from disadvantaged contexts.
