Explore you potential
The project The project aims at providing wider access to inclusion programs for the youth at risk of re-offending (21-30 years old prison inmates or probation clients) through preventive work based on NFL methods. We want to address two specific topics - violent behavioural patterns and substance abuse disorders, both initiating and fuelling unhealthy relationships, resulting in a major risk of social marginalisation and self-isolation among this youth segment. By aiming to reduce the propensity of social exclusion of youth at risk of re-offending.
The project’s goal consists of creating a network of youth workers trained to understand the importance of preventive education against recidivism of these youths at risk. As being equipped with competences and NFL methods, the youth workers will be capable of creating a positive environment for the target group, helping to build healthy relationships with themselves and others, attaining a lasting reintegration in society.
