As territorial association ,we turn in the assistance & of young people. SHANNARA since 1996 handles two residential communities which guest young girls & young men, with different ethnicity aged 12/21 , assigned by the order of the Italian Judge Court. In the most of cases, these girls & boys are moved from their families because of different and various measures, mainly because of family/environment discomforts, abused, learning abilities, poorness etc. Against smuggling & human trafficking Then Shannara takes care about the young people who come in Italy trough illegal channel of human trafficking from East Europe & Africa. We follow this young to recapture rights & dignity through educational training & psychological support. SHANNARA develops a cultural promotion, on his own and in cooperation with local (private and public) organizations & international ones through projects, studied to compare and to face: ideas, thoughts , suggestions, advice. We deal with the topic of cultural diversity, norms and values, culture, discrimination, prejudice, inclusion/exclusion by the help of outdoor games ( ludobus ), art street workshops, theatre & music seminars. All these actions are acted to reflect critically about personal and cultural identity, to gain a greater understanding of cultural diversity in different local and national realities & to better understand concepts which relate to the themes of cultural diversity, such as stereotypes, prejudice, culture etc. Girls & boys from Shannara’ s organization, students from domestic schools, educators , leaders & youth workers are all involved in these projects. The focus is based on the expressive forms like: social outdoor/ indoor games, music, dance, painting, graphic arts, photography, the so called “ non-formal education “ . “The real voyage of discovery consists not seeking new lands, but in having new eyes” The executive staff is composed of educators & voluntaries from 22 to 45,each one with specific professional qualifications. The older management team ( the legal members ) monitor them through seminars & meetings with specialists like psychologists & sociologists. The latter follow young & team up on the way. In the professional team ,we have layers, doctors, social workers & different kind of non – formal educators who gave their contribution to the community in many cases as voluntaries.
