The Foundation

Educational intervention

The aim of our educational intervention services is to accompany children in the learning of values which will help their personal growth.

Youth centres for leisure education

Our 154 youth centres use leisure education as a tool of social transformation. They work with a variety of children, those who want to enjoy educational leisure and others who require specific  social and educational care.

We run more than 20 out of school hours care centres located in neighbourhoods with social exclusion which offer leisure education to more than 3.000 children. We enhance integral action with families and their territory, we also teach social and educational values through games, improvement of school performance and the coexistence with children with social difficulties.

It has been really helpful to go to l’Esquitx youth centre, because the girls that work there – Care and Mònica – help us to look for a job, write a CV and they give us a lot of advice. They also organise parties now and then, which is great. In fact, these girls are an important part of our lives and it was thanks to them that I took this course, because my father just wanted me to get a job”

“I accompany an autistic boy in a school in Tortosa. It’s very important for him to know that I’m always with him, but I also have to help him to be as independent as possible. It’s very rewarding to see how he improves in the classroom every day, and feels part of it”
