ESC: activities for disadvantaged youth

La Strada

Medicina, BO, Italy

Activity description

The no-profit Association La Strada has been working for fifteen years in the territory of the municipalities of Medicina and Castel Guelfo in the province of Bologna, in social work especially to help children in conditions of social difficulties. Over the years, the work has expanded, involving young people and adults, especially immigrants. The activities of the association begin with the daily work, each afternoon, of specific and personalised support open to boys and girls reported by the school and local social services. Afternoon activities include educational and entertainment moments with various themes that are being developed over the entire year. The association helps also in the learning process of Italian for immigrants (children, young people, adults) who have recently arrived in our country and it started an information point about job research or other bureaucratic issues.
