Since its creation in 2012, the Youth and Inclusion Network investigates in order to establish a quality method for the intervention of children and young people at risk of social exclusion. With the combination of professional experience of specialist social enterprises and the scientific experience of different universities, we can identify good practices of intervention, evaluate them, share them and incorporate them into our day-to-day work with young people.
The different politics of the autonomous communities make the existing models for intervention very different. There have been many studies carried out about youth at risk, but none have evaluated the tools or work processes which help to develop the organisations responsible for intervention.
Each project of the Youth and Inclusion Network responds to this need: the need for the creation of a contrasting proposal and creditable results, for the management of the emancipation programmes and projects for young people at risk of social exclusion.
The network has the objective to transfer all the knowledge gained. For this reason, the investigations and publications are available for the entire professional community who work with children and young people in risky or excluding situations.
This community not only encompasses the organisations of social action, educational teams and professionals in youth intervention, but also public institutions. The network wants to collaborate with autonomous administrations in the design of social politics aimed at children and young people at risk, and especially in developing and improving the emancipation and autonomy orientation programmes.
- Current project: Analysis, evaluation and improvement of the processes of intervention for the emancipation of young people in difficulty or at risk.
