“Factory of Art” one of Adeje’s youth successes
Adeje’s Casa de la Juventud or Youth House is going from strength to strength with a wide range of events, including the popular Factory of Art and a writers’ gallery.
Youth councillor Zebenzui Chinea Linares said more than 11,000 people used the centre during 2017, adding: “This is a very significant point for us because it shows that ad-venturous youth recognise the Casa de la Juventud and use it as a meeting point in which they receive different services that respond to their needs.”
Of the 11,000 people, about 4,600 are women and more than 6,500 men. The age range that most visits the House is between 14 and 16 years old (4,948 people), followed by youth between 17 and 19 years old (2,718 people), third among those aged 20 to 25 (1507) , followed by those of more than 30 (1,193 people) and finally the range of 26 to 30 (781 people). Parallel to the visits, there are more than 3,000 people participating in the different activities and programmes that are carried out throughout the year.
Regarding the projects that are developed by the council, there are those related to the formation, the entertainment and the quality of life. The highlight of last year was the “Recreate” information and training programme in which discussion tables are held, on different current issues, culture is encouraged and responds to their demands and questions. Under the umbrella of this programme, the “Young Talent” initiative was developed, a proposal that granted a set of economic scholarships to the best academic records for students of ESO and Bachillerato.
Among the actions carried out, by the council highlights the “Factory of Art”, one activity in which different styles, artistic disciplines and cultural proposals for the juvenile population of the region are exhibited monthly. The “Dare” project also stands
