NNGG regrets the closure of the Caravaca Youth Center on summer weekends and the abolition of leisure and free-time workshops (12/07/2018)

The president of this training, Mayte Jódar, has stated that "the PSOE government team has been reducing the content of 'Caravaca Joven', a pinero program that after ten years was consolidated and that they have been in charge of dismantling"

The only activity that has been offered this summer is the Summer School Caravaca Sports Center and other schools of reduced duration, for lack of municipal support, which has been prepared by the associations of districts

For NNGG, it is worrisome that the councilor of Youth publicly recognizes that some activities are scheduled and most of them have to be suspended, something that obeys the little attention that this area is receiving and in general the youth of Caravaca and its districts

The president of NNGG Caravaca, Mayte Jódar, lamented the closure of the Youth Center on weekends in July and August and the abolition of leisure and free time workshops for young people.

This is a new step in the reduction of youth leisure activities, the dismantling of the 'Caravaca Joven' program and the lack of solutions and alternatives offered by the Pepe Moreno City Council.

"Currently there is no proposal for leisure and free time (night or day) for young people of Caravaca de la Cruz.The socialist government team has been progressively reducing the 'Young Caravaca', a program that after ten years was consolidated and that they have been in charge of dismantling ", Jódar lamented.

For the president of the youth organization, "this government does not add, subtract, eliminates by sectarianism things that were implanted with previous governments, without proposing other options so that young people can enjoy alternatives to the bottle and the amount of free hours of the holidays of summer in his town. "

The workshops and specific activities have been diluted in the last three years until reaching its minimum expression this summer, when it has left without offer to young people both in the urban area as in the districts and also to a large part of the children population, since than reviewing the official publications the only activity that has been offered is the Summer School Caravaca Sports Center and other schools of reduced duration, for lack of support, which have been prepared by the associations of districts.

"This summer there is no free activity and open to all young people, reviewing the latest news from the Youth Council seems that the entire budget has gone to host a European meeting involving young people from other countries and only some few of Caravaca, it seems good that we continue to host meetings, but we want and demand that the activities reach the whole world, that they are not exclusive or for a very small group.We want the Youth Center to be a full space all year round of healthy and positive activity ", asked Mayte Jódar.

The activities that are scheduled during the year are announced at short notice and do not approach the youth properly.

Previously the councilor of Youth, with the constant support of the technicians, visited all educational centers with an information stand.

And in this way the young people registered and raised their demands and doubts directly to the area of ​​Youth of the City Council.

"Now this is not done, and the consequence is, as acknowledged at the last plenary session by the Socialist councilor Ester Poveda, that some activities are scheduled and a large part of them must be suspended due to lack of response, something that obeys the time attention that this area is receiving This is another example of neglect and abandonment, "added the president of NNGG.

"In the last Plenary, the Youth Councilor denied the evidence and did not accept any proposal for improvement in the motion that we presented so that the leisure offer would be updated and taken to all age groups." Not an iota of self-criticism and only words What we defend is demonstrated by facts, any parent or young person can call the Youth Center and ask if there is a workshop or activity in which they can participate this summer, "Jódar has argued.

A few years ago, workshops of Oriental Dance, Modern Dance, Theater, Sevillanas, Climbing, Crafts in English, Computing, Body Expression, Cooking Photography, Musical Evenings, D'Gira Concert of Northwest groups were common in the Youth Center during all the year, as well as guided excursions and activities directed in natural places and places of historical interest.

"Part of these activities were decentralized and carried out in districts and free transportation was also offered to young people from districts, a service that we have never seen in the last three years, so we also decided to end it", he added.

Mayte Jódar recalled that "during the last decade several youth councilors bet on a program of reference as the 'Caravaca Joven', putting all their efforts, with the support always of the technicians of this area, in which young people could have a meeting point around various hobbies, favoring positive leisure behaviors and avoiding risky behaviors.They also took care of building and equipping the Youth Center with rehearsal rooms for musical groups, new technology room, climbing wall and leisure space with table football , ping-pong, targets and video-consoles ".

The Murcia Federation of Student Associations (Femae) awarded in 2010 its annual prize 'Educating in participation' to the City of Caravaca de la Cruz for the initiatives launched in the field of youth through the 'Caravaca Joven' program.

"However, now the carelessness and lack of enthusiasm of policy makers leave this programming with virtually no content.We consider that it is a pity, in addition to irresponsibility, that is losing the way walking in youth policies and not offer alternatives to children and young people who must spend the summer in their town and who have every right to enjoy ", has finished Jódar.
