Skills4Life, along with other methodologies developed as part of nonformal European projects, aims to cultivate soft skills and promote the autonomy of young people in conflict with the law by offering a range of activities and teaching materials that can be put into practice in a wide variety of contexts.

At an event held on Thursday, July 20, in Palermo, these tools were presented to the audience, which included educators from the prison sector. Testimonials were also shared from educators and youth, who have experimented with the tools.

 The presentation of the Skills4Life Curriculum, the ActiveGames4Change and the Renyo methodologies illustrated how is it possible for young people in conflict with the law to reflect about how to create satisfying career paths and healthy relationships, pursue their well-being and cope with change, They relied on the different materials developed with the support of educators and experts in prison education, which can be freely consulted and used.

This is the goal of Skills4Life: to help young people in conflict with the law acquire practical tools to reintegrate into society after their release.

Together, we can pave the way for their reintegration into society while expanding the resources and skills of educational staff in detention facilities and juvenile communities.
