The paper investigates projects and initiatives implemented over more than 15 years connected with the concept of the promotion of youth as protagonists. The need for spaces is observed as a new opportunity to construct new practices within youth policies which will make it possible to overturn the vision of young people as a group in society with specific problems to be addressed on a sector basis and instead to consider young people themselves as a new instrument for acting on society as a whole and at the same time as a strategic resource for the redefinition of certain imbalances and for improving the quality of life in urban communities. As concerns the job outlook in the field of youth policies, the creation of incubators may constitute an innovative approach because it encourages the emancipation of intervention for and with young people from a context of mere entertainment in which it has been confined for many years. It carries the idea that youth creativity may serve society in a dual business and social role.
