“Keep Dreaming” aims to enhance the experience of social participation and volunteering of young people in community actions through the enhancement of their mental health. This project seeks to give young people the power and motivation to play a crucial role in their personal development, as well as in the development of their communities through active participation, which allows them to acquire essential skills for life, develop understanding of human rights and citizenship; and foster effective civic engagement. The sense of initiation that can be implemented in each participant can promote their participation and social commitment. This project will focus on all stages of youth engagement and how to turn an anxious and stressful experience into a healthier and more effective one. Improving youth participation can have a direct impact on active citizenship. By providing ways to have healthier engagement, young people will definitely be able to get more involved in their local communities, start taking action at different levels from towns, larger cities or even national and global. Also, when young people start to build a healthier community.
