PROVA Project is a European funded project aimed at preventing the radicalisation of juvenile offenders in prison and probation.
It is addressed to professionals of the juvenile justice system, stakeholders committed to inclusion policies, and minors/young-adults under criminal proceedings. University students have been involved in its Implementation. After the definition of target groups, contents and Partners’ roles, have been carried out Implementation of Training, Workshops and Guidelines. The training was addressed to professionals, to improve – with participatory methods – their competences, team-building capabilities, empowerment, and specific skills in preventing conflicts. Stakeholders have been involved in the use of urban spaces for fostering youth aggregation. Workshops introduced activities for youth under criminal proceedings, involving university students, aimed at re-imagining urban spaces, including the inner spaces of juvenile detention institutions, to make them open to intercultural dialogue.
