Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Socialhögskolan

Sammanfattning: The aim of this study was to explore and get an insight in unaccompanied youth experiences of being a part of sport teams in Sweden. I wanted to investigate how the youths described their experiences. Also I wanted to investigate the significance the participation had for their situation here in Sweden. I conducted three semi-structured interviews with unaccompanied youths that were active in some sort of sport in Sweden. I found that the meaning of having something to do in their spare time was very important for the unaccompanied youths. That sport also was something that they loved to do, led to great feelings of happiness and enjoyment. Factors that contributed to that had a lot to do with being able to get a feeling of fellowship and solidarity through the participation. The youths described a striving to get in to the Swedish community, and described participation in sports as a way to achieve this. On the other hand, my study also found that there were some obstacles linked to the participation. One of this obstacles was language difficulties. The study showed that a feeling of exclusion was sometimes recurrent for the youths. In conclusion, the study showed that an important factor for the youths was to have goals and dreams with their participation.
