Analysis, evaluation and improvement of the processes of intervention for the emancipation of young people in difficulty or at risk

The Network for Young People and Inclusions current project was selected in 2014 to be part of the Active Citizen Programme, which is a financial initiative for the Mecanismo Financiero del Espacio Económico Europeo (EEA Grants), operated by The NGO Platform for Social Action. The principal goal of the project is to offer an evaluative system of improvements and professional practices in the work for the autonomy and emancipation of youth at risk.
It involves a study coordinated with the Universities of Girona, The Balearics, Santiago de Compostela and the UNED about the programmes of emancipation of four non profit organisations in the field of autonomy and inclusion of young people in risky situations. Opción 3, Servei Solidari, Fundació Natzaret and IGAXES coordinated the last project.
The investigation will consist of 4 phases. The first of these analyses the methodology of the member organisations and chooses the cases that will serve as the basis for actions of improvement. Furthermore, the second phase will centre on the improvement of protocols and instruments of intervention.
In the third, they will verify the data obtained with multidisciplinary experts to support and enrich the results. Finally, in the fourth phase, a final report will be prepared. Its publication will contain all the best contributions of service from the entire professional community. The conclusions will be presented in a congress and supported by experts, to be later moved to the autonomous administrations with the objective of influencing future public policies about young people in vulnerable situations.
