The INTEGRA network – collaboration between civil society, the private social and public institutions
What do we mean when we talk about the autonomy of minors and young adults? What are the limits they face to reach autonomy? How can we activate autonomy pathways for young boys and girls? How can the INTEGRA network facilitate this process? Which actors do you think should be involved in the network? How can we strengthen the network?
We discussed about these topics on 7 November 2019 at the Municipality of Palermo, together with the members of the INTEGRA network and the international partners of the INTEGRA project during the presentation event of the situation of unaccompanied minors and young care leavers and the activities of the INTEGRA network.
The INTEGRA network, that was born about 6 months ago in Palermo, as of today connects 22 organizations and individuals who have committed to collaborate, share their skills, experiences, practices and initiatives with the aim of promoting pathways to autonomy for minors and young care leavers.
The network in Palermo connects all those who believe in collaboration between civil society, the private social and public institutions:
CESIE, Operative Unit Reception and Integration of UAMS and young adults – Municipality of Palermo, Association of young senegalese Niofar, Association for social promotion FRIDA, Association Tomorrow Never Ends, Camera Minorile di Palermo, Centro Astalli Palermo, Center for Creative Development Danilo Dolci, Centro Penc – antrophology and geoclinical psychology, CIAI Sicilia – Italian center for children aid, Cooperative Nuovi Orizzonti, Cooperativa Sociale La Fenice, CPIA PALERMO 1 Center for Adult Education, IKENGA APS, Don Calabria Gruppo appartamento La Vela Grande, SEND Agency for job and international mobility, intercultural mediator Giulia di Carlo, tutor Marzia Capitano, tutor Rosalba Graziano, Student Kalabo Hermione Dikuku, Student Moussa Sangare, Student Ansou Seck
The network is open to all those who want to unite the energy and support boys and girls towards their autonomy!
Join the network and you will no longer be alone! As the representative of the cooperative “Nuovi Orizzonti” Maria Teresa Favoloro said: “The INTEGRA network helped me not to feel alone anymore; with the support of the network we finally managed to bring activities into the center for our youngsters and also bring them for activities outside the center”.
