The Chance Project is an initiative whose main purpose is the educational and social re-integration of a group of teenage drop-outs, aged between 14 and 16. It aims to enable these adolescents to obtain a school diploma by combining academic education, focused on the achievement of literacy, with the learning of social and practical skills. The range of activities is designed to re-instil a fundamental motivation to learn through an educational programme that is wide-ranging and personally meaningful, and through opportunities for developing cooperative skills.
