The launch of the Platform for Cooperation “P4C” from “Hope For Children” CRC Policy Center was held within the framework of the European Program “INTEGRA: Multidisciplinary Mentorship Program to support the entrepreneurship of children in care and young care-leavers” (REC-RCHI-PROF-AG-2017-785703). The presentation event of the Platform 4 Cooperation towards the Program’s Stakeholders took place on the 21st of February at Olympic Hall, in Nicosia.
The stakeholders who signed the protocol for cooperation and committed to contribute to the program’s success are Leroy Merlin Cyprus, Cyprus Sport Organization KOA, Youth Board of Cyprus, Nicosia Municipality Multifunctional Foundation, IOM Cyprus, NGO Support Centre Cyprus, MMC Mediterranean Management Center Ltd, CSI Center for Social Innovation, CARDET, Sistema Cyprus, SEAL CYPRUS, Cyprus Youth Clubs Organization, Junior Achievement Cyprus, EDITC Education and Information Technology Centre, Home For Cooperation, Citizens In Power and Visual Voices.
The aim of P4C is to create a network which brings together professional caregivers with post-care stakeholders, forming in this way an additional support system for both children in care and young-care leavers on the difficult path to social and cultural integration. As an interactive online service, P4C is ready to connect care professionals acting as mentors with various post-care stakeholders as employers, trainers, educators, legal counsellors, advisors etc. Through this tool, stakeholders can publish training, apprenticeships and job opportunities as well as other services useful for children leaving care systems.
