MOJU - Move-Te (Move Yourself for a Better Tomorrow
MoJu together with four undergraduate students of Social Education at the University of Algarve is developing a project named “Móve-te” (Move yourself) which main objective is to promote the social participation of young people and thus draw conclusions about their interests and aspirations.
During the project we have organized two main events which involved more than 300 young people from our city, Olhão: “Concurso de Talentos” (Talents Contest) and “Vivar-te Dança” (Live the art of dancing).
The Talents Contest was organized on the 16th of February, where 23 young people participated in the categories of Music, Dance, Photography and Fashion. The main objective of this event was to give an opportunity for these young people of Olhão to prove their talents to the community.
The latest initiative, Live the art of dancing, was integrated on the celebrations of the International Dance Day and took place on 27th of April. On this event we had the presence of 8 dancing groups and over than 300 young people participating and celebrating this day.
The great success of both events and our big audience has demonstrated the importance of promoting their participation and talents together with the local community.
