In the past few weeks, we have launched our new educational path aimed at teenagers that develops competencies in the STEAM (acronym for Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) field through creative digital education.
In December, the Community Foundation of Agrigento and Trapani started the PCTO (Path for Transversal Competencies and Orientation) educational activities aimed at students at the IISS “Sciascia-Bufalino” school in Trapani as part of the Drop-in project, aimed at combating child poverty.
Educational poverty in Sicily represents a challenge that, if not addressed in a synergistic manner by the community, puts the future of teenagers at risk, especially those from families living in economically and socially vulnerable situations.
These young people are at higher risk of dropping out of school and face greater difficulties in obtaining adequate training, elements that could limit their professional opportunities in adulthood. It is essential to create high-quality educational opportunities for these boys and girls to help them develop the skills and knowledge necessary for their future.
The path developed by the Community Foundation uses a new format: TILT! – Inclusive Technologies for Free Talents, built with the methodological support of the Golinelli Foundation, an important reality that promotes culture through original and innovative projects.
This is an approach that places creative digital education, sharing with the local community, and “learning by doing” at the center, embracing error as a personal growth moment.
