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 and their involvement is recognized as an important part of building an education system working at its best.

Activities
listening sessions
In these spaces, the Pros share their experience at the School with the ComParte 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 the ComParte 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 their best.
ComParte also gives decision-makers a notebook with the testimonies of the young people and where they delve into the main themes.

Pros Residence
The residences are spaces for socializing and listening that take place more intensively, at ComParte's house, with a view to deepening 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.

Pros Conferences
Beyond decision makers, the Pros experience has the ability to inspire different audiences. In this sense, ComParte organizes and participates in conferences where the Pros transmit their knowledge to society.

holiday camps
ComParte's summer camps are held annually and bring together the Pros in a dynamic and fun environment, in a different location. 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 recognize themselves as Pros.

ComParte & Integration

At ComParte & Integração we count on the experience, experience and knowledge of those who find refuge in Portugal. We invite the Pros of Integration to reflect on the acceptance and integration into Portuguese society and to contribute to its continuous development by proposing ideas to decision-makers.

Activities
Listening Sessions
Typically held at Casa ComParte, the sessions involve refugees and asylum seekers from different origins, who arrived in Portugal at least 6 months ago. In these spaces, the Pros share with the ComParte team their experience of welcoming and integrating in Portugal, considering what works best and what can be transformed, as well as proposing recommendations. In this process, each refugee discovers their potential to contribute and becomes aware of the importance of the information they share.

Meetings with Decision Makers

In these Meetings, ComParte also delivers a “Notebook” to decision-makers, which compiles the testimonies of the Pros of Integration and where it explores the main themes.

Merged Share
ComParte em Fusão is a true sharing of cultures and flavors. Every 2 months, a multicultural dinner is organized at Casa ComParte with around 2 guests from different origins, each one bringing and giving to taste typical recipes from their country, among socializing, artistic moments and conversation circles. ComParte em Fusão inspired the creation of the “Coffee World” project, promoted by Take.it.

Pros Retreats
Retreats are held annually and bring the Pros together in a dynamic and fun environment in a different location. It is a time to get closer to the project team, to strengthen bonds of friendship and trust, to deepen relevant issues for integration and to provide the Pros with an opportunity to recognize themselves as Pros.

ComParte's methodology leads Pros to share their ideas and contributions directly with decision makers. Thus, ComParte promotes conferences and meetings between Pros and Decision-makers that allow the sharing of information and establishing ways of communication and trust with society.
