Areas

ComParte & Education

In the area of ​​Education, we invite young people to share their experiences and ideas about what works and what can be transformed in school. In this process, students meet directly with decision-makers at different levels of the system and their involvement is recognized as an important part of building an education system working at its best.

Activities
listening sessions
In these moments, Pros share their experience at school with ComParte’s team, considering what works best and what can be transformed, as well as proposing recommendations. In this process, each young person discovers their potential to contribute and becomes aware of the importance of the information they share.

Meetings with Decision Makers
After a first phase of sessions with ComParte's team, we invite the Pros to share their ideas and contributions directly with the decision makers. The meetings are facilitated and prepared by ComParte so that each young person can contribute with their best.
ComParte also gives decision-makers a notebook with the testimonies of the young people where they delve into the main themes.

Pros Residence
The residences are spaces for socializing and listening more intensively. They take place at ComParte’s home and aim to deepen a topic or specific recommendations.

ComPros
Youth meetings with the ComParte team, which take place regularly at ComParte's home. The Pros participate in activities promoted by the team and by themselves in a climate of trust and closeness. In these interactions, the sense of mission is reinforced, knowledge and experience about Education is shared and the sense of belonging is strengthened.

It is a time to get closer to the project team, to strengthen bonds of friendship and trust, to deepen relevant themes for integration and to provide an opportunity for the Pros to identify as such.
