The actors work and FOR and WITH children and young people and their environment to create preconditions for their future positive inclusion in social life, regardless of their origin and capabilities:
• to develop their personal potential and build a value system;
• for prevention of participation in acts of violence, ethnic intolerance, sexually transmitted diseases, human trafficking, drugs;
• for the inclusion of disadvantaged adolescents: from minority ethnic groups, deprived of parental care, homeless, with physical and intellectual problems, with deviant behavior, dropped out of school, victims of violence and military conflicts;
• for their inclusion in a youth network for non-formal civic education of peers under the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Applying innovative for our country theater- and drama techniques, actors conduct non-formal civic education among adolescents. The audience is not just a spectator, a and a participant in an interactive presentation. In work sessions, students learn through experience, and not by learning, how to deal with life's problems
