    In community of  a small village of 500 people in an island of the Philippines , missing places where young people can spend their free time. They  have a problem because a lot of tourists come here for holidays and young people spend their time selling handcrafts products at the beach. They do not earn enough mony in this way, plus they do not go to school.

    I think we should give them some alternatives  more related with youth needs, for example: playground fields.

    Anyone for suggestions?

    Hello, tourist tours provided by youngsters sounds very good, because it is a great opportunity for summer job. The youngsters can earn their own money, when tourist make donation to the association and in for this job youngsters get free lunch.

    It remind me Free Guide Tours that are offered in more and more cities in Europe. Usually the guides are students and they are doing this job during their free times. The tourists contribute after finishing the tour, so it is different approach in compare to the the normal guide tour agencies. For students this is a perfect chance to practise also their English skills and even other languages, becuase in most cities there is the offer also in Spanish, German and in other languages depends on there the tourists come from.
