Our educators offer the skills acquired in thirty years of on-site work to promote rights, participation in the management of shared assets, self-knowledge and knowledge of others and integration.
Our services are designed for schools and organized groups (children, young adults, teachers, educators, animators), for the corporate world and for all those who are interested in volunteering.
594 children involved in courses of global citizenship education in the school year 2017/18
14 young people taken part in work-school alternation in the school year 2017/18
151 adults attended training sessions in the school year 2017/18
The activities we propose to schools, of all types and levels, are part of the great chapter of rights and citizenship and integrate this theme with teaching, offering thought-provoking ideas that can be further investigated during the school year.
The methodology includes participative lessons with theoretical reasoning, simulation games and practical workshops. The ultimate goal is to encourage good practices for improving the local and global context.
How is this done? By identifying the subject area of interest, adapting the proposal based on specific needs, establishing the number of meetings and the methods of intervention.
