ANHAS, Danilo de Miranda  and  SILVA, Carlos Roberto de Castro e. Social participation and subjectivity: youth experience in a vulnerable community. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.3, pp.139-148. ISSN 1516-3687.

This article aimed at analyzing the influence of psychosocial factors in the construction and strengthening of social participation processes among young residents of the Vila dos Pescadores, in Cubatão, SP, who attended a non-profitable organization and a capoeira group in the community. Semi-structured interviews and participant observation were the instruments used to construct the results. We interviewed young people and adults who had worked with this audience in the spaces mentioned. We analyzed the results according to Depth Hermeneutics and not only point to the difficulties faced by young people in living in a community of high vulnerability marked by exclusion, but also to strategies for coping with these circumstances through participation in the projects of a non-profitable organization and a capoeira group.

Keywords : social participation; community; affectivity; youth; subjectivity.
