The project RECHANCE includes 8 partners (ROMODROM, XENIOS POLIS, CENTER FOR SOCIAL INNOVATION, PRISM, PROLEPSIS, EUROPEAN UNIVERSITY CYPRUS, KNOW&CAN, SPECTRUM RESEARCH CENTRE) from 6 countries, that means (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy).
The fundamental orientation of the project is twofold and refers to:
a) the recently released prisoners who will be educated and supported on their personal development and social entry chances through specific rehabilitation approaches and cultivation of specific knowledge-skills-competencies:
Life skills communication & networking ‘administration’
Time management skills
Conflict resolution skills
Social surviving competency
b) the adult educators who will undertake the role/ responsibilities of training.
Additionally, as participants, there will be a variety of other stakeholders and practitioners, such as- for example- representatives of NGOs and CSOs with a focus on prisoners, individuals at risk, or belonging to marginalized/disadvantaged populations. The training of released prisoners should entail the proper use of technology, as this group of people had no computer or internet access (maybe for years) and it is in a disadvantageous situation when attempting to adjust to life after prison: ICT use training has become a crucial piece of re-entry programs. Rehabilitation approaches should offer the trainees new skills and new insight into life goals and motivation.
