During the meeting, the centres have shared their strategies, which are mainly focused on:
— individual support through social mentoring actions and personalized tutorial action;
— activities for personal development and family involvement (EXIT group, social theatre, interactive groups, family space, etc.) focused on working on positive and healthy relationships, on positive attitude towards learning, on improving the relationship with educational centres, etc.;
— establishing links with the wider community through a collaborative and coordinated action between educational centres and the social and educational agents of the municipality through the active participation of the centres in Context Educational Plans, the development of youth orientation spaces in the educational centres, the design of protocols of absenteeism at the municipal level, etc.
