Jovesolides starts again La Ruta, the program of labour paths with which it encourage the employability of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion in the province of Valencia. All this through the learning of basic skills, and through the use of social innovation methodologies.
The percentage of the population at risk of poverty or social exclusion represents 30.5% of the total population in the Valencian Community, compared to 27.9% in the rest of Spain, according to data from the Valencian Institute of Economic Research. To this figure is added the number of long-term unemployed persons, 7.3% of the total working-age population. Therefore, Jovesolides remains interested in developing this type of programs, because they can be a new opportunity for people with fewer opportunities.
This year the entity will promote the learning of social skills, techniques, and empowerment of the participants. And it will pay special attention to each profile. To do this, each case will be studied, and a personalized action plan will be drawn up. In addition, the entity will provide a coaching service, whose main objective is to develop the professional profile of each person.
In La Ruta a total of 20 people will participate, with which they will work through personal training tools and social innovation. The idea is "to increase the autonomy and independence of the participants, and to favor their insertion in the labor market", says Amparo Pedraza, technical responsible for the program.
This program, which attended 80 people last year, is possible thanks to the financing ofEquality and Inclusive Policies of the Valencian Government, , within the framework of general interest aid to meet social purposes with a charge of 0.7% IRPF allocation, in the Valencian Community.
