OUR WORK
 

WHAT DOES STADSNOMADE DO?

Stadsnomade is a non-profit organisation active in Maastricht and neighbouring
municipalities. We offer support, opportunities and advocacy to young people between the
ages of 5 and 25 in the areas of skateboarding, street sports and urban culture. Our
practices are bottom-up, meaning we emphasise on both the support and participation of the
local community. Together with our partners, we contribute to the sustainable development of
young individuals, their community and the city.

Methode

METHOD

Our method is underpinned by three pillars:

Positieve gezondheid
participatie
socialecohesie

Participation in sports and culture promotes the well-being and resilience of young people, while they experience fun and challenges. Our vision is therefore that all young people should have access to sport & culture.

Positive health

Participation in sports and culture promotes the well-being and resilience of youth, while they experience fun and challenges. Our vision is therefore that all youth should have access to sport & culture.

Participation

We believe that sustainable changes only come about in collaboration with the people who matter. By participating, thinking along and co-deciding, young people develop their skills, competences and sense of ownership.

Social cohesion

We facilitate space for interaction and places to meet. When people know each other, interact well and help each other, they experience more connection. And people who experience more connection in their community are happier.

The Stadsnomade method is based on the active elements from the following models and theories:
 

†  Positive Health (Powered Hubert)

The Icelandic Prevention Model 

Empowerment Theory (Zimmerman)

Self-Determination Theory (Deci & Ryan)

Positive Youth Development (the 5 C's)

We believe that if young people develop more ownership and responsibility, they can grow to great heights
