Impact and successes

The session on socio-emotional assessment had a very positive impact on minors as it gave them tools to handle their situation but also on educators who learned how to create a safe space for minors to share their needs. Through safe spaces the boys shared their needs and helped each other and it was shown to be a powerful tool to help improve their wellbeing.

Interest in education has also increased and educators report being empowered to accompany the minors in their life paths in general but specifically in their academic trajectories.

Lessons, learning and recommendations

A visit to a school that has great experience implementing SEAs was very much valued and an inflection point for the centre: getting in touch and building a network between the different communities who are working to provide a better future for migrants and all children and learning through each other is also highly recommended.
