Between November 19 and 23, the event that closes YOUNIC is held at the Mas Fonollar Center, in Santa Coloma de Gramenet (Barcelona), a project of more than two years that Mundus has coordinated with social entities from Romania, Italy , Mexico and Colombia.
Several of the young promoters of the Union of Extuteled Youth of Catalonia have presented this group to the representatives of the entities participating in the YOUNIC project, which has collaborated in the creation and dissemination of the association as a formula for the empowerment of the most vulnerable of youth.
Giyaur Rahman, president of the UJEC, explained that the association was born out of the need to guarantee the resources and basic needs of young people who, when they turn 18, leave the public guardianship system abruptly. First, from the collective it is claimed that there is a sufficient and equal material endowment to guarantee full labor and social insertion. In addition, they intend to make visible and de-stigmatize extuteled youth. On the other hand, the young promoters of the association want to share their stories and success strategies to the supervised people, emphasizing the need for them to develop their autonomy and entrepreneurial capacity. Finally, a primary objective is to collaborate with other entities and especially with public institutions so that there is a real protection of the rights of ex-supervised youth.
After the presentation of the UJEC, its representatives have had the possibility to chat with each of the representatives of social entities from Mexico, Colombia, Italy and Romania. Specifically, the work of Ferney Arévalo, participant of YOUNIC of Colombia, who volunteered at the EVEHO association, helping to create and disseminate UJEC has been highlighted.
YOUNIC is a strategic project, funded by the European Commission and coordinated by Mundus, through which the opportunity has been generated for six organizations from different parts of the world to share a long-term experience to work with young people with fewer opportunities boosting their capacity entrepreneur and her initiative locally.
