“After goodbye… My Goodness! – Journeys after foster care”

The statements of young people who left foster care, along with international studies and data from official reports, help to outline the exit profile of young people growing up in institutions. By understanding their characteristics and needs, we try to understand how to improve their transition to autonomous living. After 8 years of activity, PAJE – Platform to Support Former Foster Care Youth presents some of its projects that aim to encourage them to be the best version of themselves and to promote favorable transitions and social insertion.
