REVIEW OF THE TRAINING INITIATIVE:

Frame of reference
In the field of adolescence distress, among the causes of dropout and early school leaving, the affective and the social ones have been identified as particularly relevant . For this reason peer education is seen as an educational method that opens up many possibilities.
The project makes it particularly important the dissemination of information to aid the development of an untroubled and safe sex among teenagers.The interesting thing is that, for the 93% of students in participating schools, school is the appropriate place to provide training for the individual's emotional sphere.In addition to the teachers, the thirty-two students of the four schools involved will be trained. After a series of training sessions, these students become tutors for their classmates.
Target audience: teachers and students from four high schools in Prato: 'F. Datini' Vocational Institute,'Gramsci/Keynes' Technical Institute, 'C.Livi' Scientific High School and 'P.Dagomari'Commercial Institute.
Duration: 2010-2011 school year.
