Resilience and young people. A journey of discovery



Formation days for young people with Social Workers, Mediterránea

30/11/2018: Spain

The Marcellin Champagnat Foundation and the BICE (International Catholic Office of children), with the collaboration of FMSI and the Catholic University of Milan, organized, from 9th to 11th of November, the first ever formation days for young people and Social Workers from the Spanish area of the Mediterránea Province.  

A group of twelve young people aged between 15 and 21 from socio-educational projects, social workers and residential workers  came from  more than eight towns, to spend three days in Córdoba, Spain, sharing a novel and pioneering experience encouraged by four entities, which they shared amongst themselves, to "work in favour of the rights and the well-being of boys, girls and young people at risk of exclusion".  

"Resilience and young people. A journey of discovery", has as its objective to endow these young people with tools to improve, in the first place, personal resilience and later to become resilient agents with their peer groups within their own environment. 

This formation can be found in a formative block of "Tutors of Resilience" which from the year 2017 has been developed  in different parts of the Marist Province of Mediterránea, for example, in Granada (Spain),  Proyecto Fratelli (Lebanon) and Aleppo (Syria), as well as in other Provinces in different countries of the Institute.  

The meeting was attended by Brothers Juan Carlos Fuerte (Provincial of Mediterránea) and Álvaro Sepúlveda (FMSI).
