RAGAZZI HARRAGA – Social Inclusion Processes for unaccompanied minors in the city of Palermo

ObjectivesActivitiesResultsPartnersInfo & contacts
  • To strengthen and innovate the care arrangements for children and youth aged 12 to 17, welcomed at the reception centres of Palermo and in custody of the Municipal Assistance Services
  • To improve the quality of services, projects and more generally of a rooted hospitality for social integration looking beyond the basic primary needs response
  • To establish a social, working and housing Inclusion Model that considers potential, interests and expectations of unaccompanied migrant minors in the city of Palermo, based on two pillars: the promotion of a network of inter-institutional actors and the definition of individual inclusion paths
  • Education and schooling (Italian language lessons, diploma exams’ preparation courses, orientation for educational and professionalising offers available in the territory)
  • Recreational workshops (theatre, sports, buddy moments of aggregation with peers, etc.)
  • Vocational counselling (information and guidance to residential services; definition of professional skills and aspirations starting from their migration experience; portfolio and curriculum vitae composition; accompaniment to the workplace; in-service training and placement inclusion – curricular and extracurricular programmes at work)
  • The ‘Harraga Facility’: half house, half hostel – offering also work opportunities
  • Work placements, integrated into a wider vocational orientation, target oriented for both, individuals and groups
  • ‘Harraga e-Platform’ for sharing, monitoring and tracing of individual inclusion paths, exchange of methodologies and identification of skill-enhancing-tools that promote continuity in inclusion paths (formalise and share experiences)
