CHANGING YOUTHstories Mapping risks , diagnosing needs and modelling multimodal intervention towards personal growth and social inclusion of young people in difficult situation Our proposal aims to foster personal growth, to increase social inclusion and to facilitate professional insertion of young people from at risk groups, by designing and piloting a framework for case-based diagnose and multimodal intervention that scaffolds the EMPOWERMENT, PARTICIPATION and ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP of these YOUNG PERSONS. The objectives we set indicate the attention given and the resources we allot to all the systems and actors playing a part in the lives of youth at risk: Ob.1 configure the SYSTEMIC EXPERTS TEAMS/SETs and bring in the youth at risk target groups in order to interrogate all for data to become baseline documentation for project Ob. 2 design and pilot the methodology, processes, instruments and resources for case-based diagnose and for multimodal intervention to support personal growth, social inclusion and professional insertion of youth at risk Ob. 3 enable and guide the youth workers, DIRECT INTERVENTION TEAMS/DITs to develop expertise and confidence in using panoramic diagnose and multimodal intervention to design personal projects for the young people they work with Ob. 4 start up 'the social cooperative structure' as framework of intervention and support for the young people and their personal project of 'recovery' after diagnose Ob. 5 empower, guide and support young people at risk participating in the project along the diagnostic and intervention route proposed to them Ob. 6 collect all data that documents the experiences & lessons learnt during the project and, drawing on these, make recommendation for public-private partnership Throughout the project the main focus and attention is placed around 50 YOUNG PEOPLE that are in aggregated difficult and at risk situations. For us DISADVANTAGED YOUTH is a large category, covering various types of situations that negatively influence individuals’ life chances to lead normal lives, to be employable and to realize their potential - migrants/refugees, young people that experienced dropout, or/and with an oppositional behaviour, and/or convicted for a, and/or those who experienced drug addiction. As our approach is systemic and multilevel, we speak of deep, qualitative, holistic engagement with these youth coming from 4 countries. The methodology we propose encompasses panoramic diagnose and multimodal intervention of each case involving a young person that needs a personalised ‘recovery’ project, so STAFF WORKING WITH YOUTH FROM DISADVANTAGED GROUPS are important actors; they need a relevant frame, procedures and instruments that support quality case-based interventions and personalised engagement with young people, also training that enables them to function as self-confident practitioners, so we target 75 youth workers from 4 countries, that will gain competences and apply them within 50 DITs. In addition, we also engage 100 parents, as they are an important resources and potential leverage elements in understanding the context of young people at risk and in drawing their route towards social inclusion. As the responsibility to influence the design and implementation of public policies and community practices that create and support the social, entrepreneurial and economic frames for youth at risk inclusion and insertion is a shared responsibility, we will reach, through multiplier events, 176 social partners. The main steps we propose towards meeting our objectives are: # SETs constituted and interactions for their harmonisation done; # young people to be engaged in the project identified, dialogues with them initiated and their first series of stories taped # framework, mechanisms, instruments, for diagnose & intervention developed by SETs # DITs created, their members trained and enabled # DITs work case by case, their work documented # young people diagnosed, an intervention project proposed to them, they are engaged in remedial work in social entrepreneurial protected structures and other protected real life contexts # documentation and data collected problematized and recommendation done The outputs that document and sustain the changes in the lives of young people and the new approach and environment we propose for contributing to the EMPOWERMENT, PARTICIPATION and ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP of YOUTH AT RISK are: o1 Stories of myself o2 Markers of panoramic diagnose and multimodal intervention. Handbook o3 Case-study compendium for practitioners o4 Start up. Entrepreneurial framework for social inclusion work and professional insertion o5 Chronicles of success
