Enable each young person to participate!
Many young people in Switzerland with a migrant background find themselves isolated and living in hardship. As a result, they have difficulty expressing themselves and playing an active role in their own destiny.
The Speak Out! project allows these young people to develop their social skills and to take part in advocacy work. It gives them a forum in which to make their voice heard and to take control of their situation.
As a project organised for and by young people, Speak Out! is based on a participatory approach. It is up to the young people themselves to determine the contents of workshops, to decide which grievances they want to defend, and to select project campaigns.
