The project aims to build and share, going beyond the emergency reception of children and youth on the move. It comprises ten partners, with the active participation of citizens and institutions, committed to a vision in which migrant children  are no longer seen as the beneficiaries of default integration programmes but as proactive individuals who are responsible for their own life project.

In Brescia, the project provides about 60 young people with a multi-professional team able to enhance a balanced growth of both the individual and the community and create opportunities for interaction between the migrant and the community around him. It does this through volunteer training and education as well as by sharing of experiences in a cultural and social environment, the development of professional skills, and the approach to the labour market.

The partners are arranging meetings devoted to schools and developing special programmes in favour of the sector operators and the citizenship for the recruitment of civic volunteers guardians and the experiment of widespread social foster care practices. These are the paths that may generate a new common space, where  the needs and aspirations of the child are answered and can find opportunities in a conscious and friendly citizenship capable of promoting an effective, long-lasting and inclusive process.
