OUR PARTICIPATION IN THE Y.CIVIC PROJECT
In our daily work we try to promote active citizenship and the legality of young people at risk of social exclusion and marginalization. Our youth center is located in Brancaccio, an area that unfortunatelly is full of NEETs young peeple, so we think that this project can impact positively on them both in terms of improvement of competences and opportunities.
