“Results of the Transition to Adult Life Program in Rural Areas”
A project so that young people in foster care or at risk of exclusion can have a future in rural areas without being forced to leave their roots behind.
Anyone should be able to build their life project in the place they want, although for young people it is increasingly complicated. The situation is even more complex for girls and boys in foster care or in a situation of vulnerability.
This program, funded by the European Union and the Galicia’s Regional Government aims to support young people so that they can build a life project, specifically, in the municipalities of southern Lugo and northern Ourense, knocking down barriers to get training, housing and employment as well as to promote a community bond.
The presentation will break down the results of the two-year intervention of the Program of Transition to Adult Life, Autonomy and Emancipation for young people in vulnerable situations in non-urban areas.
