Rehabilitate young people through work

When we met Barbara Pizzinini and we heard the stories of many young people that the Cooperative EOS supports and helps, we were appalled, because we had never thought that in South Tyrol there could be so dramatic situations.

They are still underage boys and girls presenting psychic, psychiatric and social problems, struggling to compete with the expectations and pressures of the outside world. They are young people labeled as "different" or "outside the box" and therefore condemned to social exclusion. They are indeed young people with qualities and sensibility that if developed can achieve great results.

The way chosen by EOS to guide these young people find a placement on the labour market seemed like the right one. That is why we enthusiastically accepted the call for help of Barbara. Our Foundation supports the work integration project JAI in 2013 not just financially, but helping to find apprenticeships for these young people in the area of Bolzano.
