THE SOCIOEDUCATIONAL CENTRES AFFILIATED TO THE PERE TARRÉS FOUNDATION
Through a network of 35 socioeducational centres, we provide educational and emotional support all year round to around 6,000 children and teenagers in vulnerable situations. The aim is to prevent them failing or dropping out of school and promote their self-esteem and chances of future security.
Every day, time is spent doing homework, resolving queries, doing extra reading and working on dynamics for acquiring study techniques. At the same time, the children and young people have the chance to use computers for doing their work, as most of them do not have them at home.
Emotional well-being directly effects performance at school. For this reason, activities are carried out in the centres to detect and deal with emotional conflicts and needs. Individual care is given to children who require it.
EDUCATION THROUGH LEISURE
Educators organise leisure activities so that children and young people acquire healthy habits and new learning through play, along with personal skills that help with their physical and emotional development.

“I get tremendous support from the centre. They help us a lot with emotional and learning issues. I’m very grateful to the whole team because they make me feel I’m not alone in bringing up my daughter”
Karina, mother involved in the Rotllana-Verdum Socioeducational Centre
“At the centre they help me with my school work. It’s a place where I can see different people. I feel good and happy there. When I come home, I’m happy. I can have a good night’s sleep”
Sharon, teenager from the Claret Youth Centre
“Educational support helps children to feel they can trust the people around them and will get help and support throughout the entire personal growth process. It’s somewhere they know they will always find positive references to support them, with the establishment of a secure environment for them”
Mireia Peiró, educator from the "Al vent!" youth centre – La Vinya Foundation
“Since Jasmin had been going to the centre, she takes much more care over doing her homework and studying. Her relationships with her friends and schoolmates have also improved”
