The project continues the well-established tradition of connecting related local organizations that carry
out educational, social and preventive programs for children and youth and for other vulnerable social groups. The main target group of the project are children, youth and people deprived of normal functional life. Project partners offer to their users space where they can feel comfortable and safe, where they can develop their social skills and where they can get quality support with their behavioral, emotional, learning and other problems. The aim of the programs is to provide support to the widest circle of users, as well as to those with special needs and other problems. Support is provided at the individual level (work with each individual), as well as in cooperation with their families. The program includes group work and activities with adolescents, cooperation between various institutions, training, counseling, holiday camps, day trips, workshops, etc.
