The Social Incubator


OUR STORY

The Social Incubator was established in April 2014 by a group of 5 friends, professionals in various fields who, after having been involved in numerous volunteering activities taking the form of a punctual and short-term support for institutionalized youths, realized that, in order to determine a real and sustainable change in these youths' lives, it is necessary for them to be supported individually and on a much longer term.

Therefore, in May 2014, the main program of the organization was launched with the goal to support the youths who have left - or are preparing to leave - the child protection system, aged between 16 and 26, to make the transition (otherwise extremely difficult and filled with risks) to adult life in a manner which values their aptitudes and ensures their long-term independence. The program began in Bucharest-Ilfov and, starting with 2016, expanded throughout the 8 administrative regions of Romania.


OUR METHOD

So far, over 2,000 youths throughout the country have been supported as part of this program, through personalized methods which include (but are not limited to):

 

  • vocational and psychological counseling
  • non-formal education
  • internship facilitation
  • exploratory visits
  • mentoring
  • tutoring
  • support with finding a paid job

 

In parallel, the association also tackles the effects, not just the causes, through the active prevention of human trafficking, institutionalized youths being one of the most vulnerable social categories when it comes to human trafficking in Romania.
