In the second article we review the network of families and the training of operators.
Due to specific milestones, the network of families willing to accommodate young people of the “Making system” project gets stronger. In particular, the AFN offices (Association for New Families Onlus) work on creating a national network: they find families willing to accommodate young people at their house and accompany them throughout the job placement process. Several young people have already had the experience of family holidays, in Mantua, Vigevano (Milan) and Sicily (see photo). Altogether, 17 families have already accomodated a young migrant and are now an integral part of the national network.
Another goal is the training of the project admission operators to help strengthen their ability to promote job integration. Additionally, we offer training for young foreigners to become cultural mediators. Two courses were held for tutors on employment orientation for migrant young people, which was attended by 60 community workers. Also the first edition of the 6-month training course for cultural mediators was realised; it lasted for 500 hours, and 22 young people were involved. The subscription for the second edition of the course has already been completed. (more…)
