Subtitle: We All Claim Other Perspectives

Goal of the project

Our goal is to create 6 territorial centers cooperating in the 6 reference territories, in collaboration with USSM and social services, building an integrated approach of activities that allow the minors involved to discover and desire perspectives beyond deviance and violence. It’s TRAP also to indicate that our methodological perspective does not deny the reality of the young people, but admits it in order to overturn it starting from needs and desires to be recognized or discovered. The partnership finds itself in a sharing of a “reparative” vision of deviance, in a reworking approach of personal experiences, in the awareness that “second chances” exist and in the desire to create protagonism in minors.

Who is it for?

The project is aimed at minors in charge of juvenile justice bodies, their families, operators of USMM and social services.


The activities of T.R.A.P. include three macro areas:

  • Activities carried out in the local centres: collective orientation workshops aimed at minors to identify together with the operators activities in which to insert themselves, starting from individual needs and desires; job orientation and training courses; restorative justice education projects; street education projects, to intervene in the so-called “at risk” neighborhoods; construction of a regional web radio as a channel for the expression of the minors involved.
  • Pilot actions: the Second Chance School, the Youth Bank and the tutors’ table. Through pilot actions we will produce operational guidelines and the scouting and training of other third sector organizations to promote the model of testing which combines solidarity service to the community with the development of educational paths centered on the minors and the development of local communities.
  • Inter-territorial experiential activities: sailing around Sicily on a sailing boat, walking along the Via Francigena in Sicily, setting up experiential camps.


The project will reach 1,000 minors followed by juvenile justice bodies in an integrated path of educational and experiential activities, individualized and group support interventions.
Activation of the entire educational community was generated, reaching 90 parents with parenting support interventions, 24 educators and social workers, as well as 36 Third sector organizations involved in training activities, 64 between legal guardians and voluntary guardians of MSNA involved in the tables of guardians.


The project was selected by CON I BAMBINI as part of the Fund for combating juvenile educational poverty.
