There is a huge need for support for the transition from dependent to independent life, because generally this transition is a process which may take several years. Therefore it is important that the process of leaving care is systematically planned and prepared well before the child leaves the residential care, but also is essential for unaccompanied minor migrants.
The present project entitled From Youth to Independent Life proposes a complex learning plan. The project’s main aim is to raise awareness and provide practice-oriented improvements for effective ways of assuring a successful transition to independent life for residential care leavers, to help achieve successful integration into society and to promote active participation in social life.
Since April 2018, when the project started, the partnership developed an online platform, with 50 educational online games, and a face to face training material with practical tools addressed to young people and residential youth care workers.
The project is implemented by 5 organisations from 4 EU countries (DGASPC Harghita – coordinator, Spektrum Educational Center Foundation - Romania, Sirius – Center for psychological counselling – Croatia, FormAzione Co&So Network – Italy and Child Protection Services of Budapest - Hungary).
All the project results can be find on the project website https://youthindependentlife.eu/.
