"The Youth Council continues with the Fuerteventura Joven 2019 programme"

One of the Youth Council of Fuerteventura's Cabildo's main objectives is to develop projects for the Island's Youth to provide them with healthy leisure and spare time activities. Sports' activities such as diving or training with the course of “Leisure and Spare Time Instructor” are some of the initiatives that took place last month during the Fuerteventura Joven 2019 programme.. A total of 60 young people enjoyed the diving initiations in Corralejo, Caleta de Fuste and Las Playitas. Thanks to those courses, participants discovered the required techniques to dive safely with a first dive in a swimming pool and then in the sea where they enjoyed the natural resources and marine resources of the North and East coasts of Fuerteventura.

The Course of Leisure and Free Time instructor, First Aid and Prevention started in Antigua and lasted a week. 25 young people took part in the course that was part theory and part practice with techniques used in socio-cultural animation, environmental education and first aid. Those initiatives, that were completely free of charge, represent a leisure activity for young people, but they also promote healthy lifestyle habits and personal autonomy.
