Our Mission is to encourage the voices of our youth to be heard. We strive to establish youth-driven social, experiential, academic activities and provide opportunities for young people and young adults to become active members in their community. Through our programs we endeavour to foster a healthy self-image and encourage positive decision-making.
Our activities recognize young people and young adult achievements and rewards them for their involvement in our events, activities and services projects; as well as supporting, motivating and giving them a positive informal experience of learning. In addition, we help improve their everyday life skills, by recognizing 'soft skills' like timekeeping, teamwork and voluntary work.

KEY POSSIBILITIES... ASSURED OPPORTUNITIES ... SOUND EXPERIENCES...
Possibility is the chance of something’s happening, regardless of whether or not it actually occurs; whether real or personal. Possibility is something that may be true or might occur, or something that can be chosen from among a series of choices. Possibility also refers to something that "could happen", that is not excluded by the facts, but usually not apparent. Possibility is the condition or fact of being possible.

Our dynamic support, contributes towards a profile of young people and young adult that stem from diverse backgrounds, facing various obstacles (educational difficulties, cultural differences, social, economic and geographical obstacles). These youths are disproportionately likely to grow-up in poor, disadvantaged homes characterized by high levels of psychosocial stressors and inadequate supportive resources.

1. Create possibility for young people in the community.
2. Provide equal opportunity to boost their confidence and self esteem.
3. Present an open platform to raise money for youth workshops/programmes.

Our experience in collaborating on a Local, National and International level with youth organizations and other companies, has motivated youth related workshops; due to the mixture of youth activities. Our partners in Europe and the USA, makes it extremely beneficial as we participate in non-formal programmes and activities.
KAS Youth Hub encourage Intercultural learning of young people, as we explore other opportunities across Europe, to increase the awareness for young people's involvement with European Volunteer Services; as this will help, not just on a diverse and cultural level; but on an intellectual and International ethos of change.
Young people are too often excluded from or overlooked in the decision-making processes that directly impact their lives and communities. The world at present can be a confusing place for young people growing into young adults. We believe that it is our combined accountability to make available tools to equip and educate the young people to take action.
Social integration is the quality of their relationship within their society and community. Integration is therefore the extent to which people feel they have something in common with others, who represent their social reality in their neighborhood; as well as the feeling of belonging in their communities and society. Social acceptance is the understanding of society through the character and qualities of other people as a generalized category.
Individuals who illustrate social acceptance trust others, think that others are capable of kindness, and believe that people can be productive. Socially accepting people hold favorable views of human nature and feel comfortable with others. Social contribution is the assessment of an individual social value. It consists of the principle that they are a vital member of society, with somewhat of value making a contribution to the world. Social contribution looks at the notion of efficacy and responsibility.
