Join INTEGRA Network to support autonomy of un-accompanied children and youth

5 March 2019 | News, Rights and Justice

Do you care about the autonomy of un-accompanied minors and youth who are about to leave care system?

Do you agree that the network between different entities, organisations and stakeholders would facilitate the exchange of information and would support the transition of children and youth towards the autonomy?

Are you willing to offer an internship or you simply know who is renting a room that can be suitable for a youngster who have just left residential facilities?

Do you believe in collaboration, communication and exchange for a social change?

Now it’s the right moment to act! Join INTEGRA Continuous Cooperation Network to support autonomy of un-accompanied children and youth leaving care system

The aim of the network is to promote collaboration between different stakeholders and establish the framework for settling, intensifying and expanding a functional and efficient cooperation for supporting the autonomy processes of children and ageing-out youth from the residential centres.

The network will connect residential care providers, educators, successful care leavers, VET providers, educational institutions, local authorities working with migrants, guardians of un-accompanied minors and will provide favourable settings for effective exchange of information about opportunities for un-accompanied minors and youth existing in Palermo and not only.

Stakeholders will be engaged through the Platform for Collaboration – a communication channel where various stakeholders, such as care professionals, residential care providers, post-care stakeholders, educational institutions and children and youth, can interact to provide the best possible opportunities and services to youngsters.

About the project

INTEGRA – Multidisciplinary Mentorship program to support the entrepreneurship of children in care and young care-leavers is co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Commission.

The INTEGRA approach envisions a personalised participatory framework, where the stakeholders take the role of guiding, connecting, mediating and supporting the children in the restoration process of new reference points for their future socio-economic inclusion as a persona integra into the community.
