FISAT projects constantly seek synergy to promote the growth and autonomy of accompanied young people. At FISAT, in fact, they are firmly convinced that the coordination and joint work of the educational teams have a positive impact.
An example of this collaboration is the hotel workshop of the "Don Bosco" Day Center and the "Apartments for the Magone Emancipation". Thanks to the support of both these Salesian realities, the hotel workshop has become a training and placement option for many young people who live in apartments for emancipation.
"When I arrived in the emancipation apartment, I didn't know which path to take. But it is the educators who have come to meet me with an appointment at the day center,” says Omar, a young beneficiary of this collaboration.
“Meeting these young people allows us to know their realities, not only to evaluate their employability, but also at what point in their life path they are,” adds Carlos, educator of the Don Bosco Day Center.
"For us, operators of the apartments for emancipation, the collaboration with the hotel workshop means a real job placement for many of them," concludes Ángela.
In the apartments for emancipation, young people are oriented towards training and improving their employability. For those who consider the hotel and restaurant sector as an option for the future, the Salesian daycare center proposes a socio-work placement itinerary as a "Cook assistant and waiter" through which young people acquire professional skills and training for personal autonomy.
The formation includes the specific contents of catering and internal and external practices, as well as educational accompaniment for personal development and the acquisition of professional and transversal skills through tutorials, autonomy sessions, job orientation, and development of social skills.
