Vulnerable young people: Job and life skills

Project Report | Oct 25, 2021
Back into work!

By Andrea Hellemeyer | Executive Director

Dear donors,


After almost two years of pandemic, we are happy to share that we are back in our communities.

Bridges is the name of our new youth & employability project. 

We are building an innovative program that promotes the inclusion of young people in situations of social vulnerability. How? Through 3 key instances: learning process + tutorials + labor intermediation managers.


Our challenge: Establish an effective bridge between young people and training, education and job opportunities.

Our task is to train and accompany young people in the process of designing and implementing an occupational training project, which seeks to increase opportunities for genuine and sustainable social inclusion.




1. WHO?

60 Young people between 18 and 24 years old.



Each young person who enters the Program will be immersed in a learning process through work meetings and group reflection + individual tutorials + labor intermediation agencies.

The program is articulated and synergized from these three instances. Tutor and  Insertion Manager,  They are two key figures serving two distinctive spheres. The tutor intervenes in the subjective aspects to transform the powers into effective tools. The Insertion Manager, for its part, facilitates and plans the link between the young person and the different possible insertion spaces (training, occupational, work, educational, etc.)



The Program starts in April  (for the initial tasks of articulation with areas of Government and design of calls) and extends until its full implementation.


4. HOW?

From FOP, 4 groups of 15 young people each are formed. Each group will be assigned a responsible Tutor. The Insertion Manager works with the young people and, in a continuous and articulated way, with the Tutors. Tutor and  Insertion Manager accompany young people from the beginning of the program to its end,


The FOP carries out a Learning Process that is made up of 9 meetings grouped into 3 thematic blocks: Discovering my project, Working on my project, My project in Action. Each of the 9 meetings lasts 3 hours. Additionally, each Tutor establishes a singular and individual accompaniment plan with each of the members of his tutoring group. Simultaneously, the Insertion Manager,  designs a training / occupational / labor mediation plan tailored to each young person. Tutor and Manager accompany, in situ, the application / integration / selection / onboarding processes that each young person starts.

 Thanks for you support!
