INTEGRA network

About us

We are a collaboration network made up of + 30 members from civil society, organizations working in the social field and public institutions.

We collaborate and bring our competences, experiences, good practices and initiatives together to promote and support the autonomy and ease the social, cultural and economic integration of young people with migrant background aging out of residential care.

Our aims

For young people

  • Provide concrete answers to young people’s social, cultural and economic needs.
  • Inform young people and the adults involved about their rights and obligations, housing, bureaucracy and work.
  • Engage those young people who are already autonomous to the network as mentors to others.
  • Identify and share opportunities for young people and create synergies between what we already do and what we can do for them.

For members

  • Support the action of members of political advocacy and whistleblowing groups.
  • Share opportunities among members for the creation of synergies among initiatives.
  • Raise awareness and provide information to employers, job agencies, companies, housing agencies, schools, etc.
  • Provide reciprocal support at general level and for specific cases related to young people.
