Our methodology

The activities developed are based on a type of participatory pedagogy, that promotes the participation of the young person, always respecting the degree of implication that which one can freely establish and conceiving each individual as a global being, understanding the totality of their being and allowing their development in all aspects, but in an individualized way, also to attend to their singularities.

Through approaches based on non-formal learning, experimental and methods from Gestalt therapy for children, we believe in a climate of motivation and confidence in and with the group, influencing the interaction of the members and in promoting sound and effective communication processes.

Likewise, sufficient means are provided to allow the initiative of young people, being able to propose activities to be carried out and in part marking the rhythm and future of the programming and its activities. Through this instruments and with the use of active methods such as theater improvisation, methods of art therapy, use specialized music and mindfulness meditation and other techniques and group dynamics, a real, spontaneous and free participation in a framework where communication, interaction and openness prevails.

As a team, we break the old schemes that delimit the role of the educator and the student, endowing of protagonism to all the components of the sessions, from a humanist perspective, trust in the innate ability of young people to commit themselves to their own personal and professional development.
