The closing ceremony of the program "Impulsate in Summer" was held at the La Tejuela Multipurpose Social Center. Twenty young people from Alcala la Real, and other villages took part. This initiative, which was promoted by the Department of Social Services, Family and Health, celebrated its second edition in July and August. The course ended with the projection and exhibition of a group video.
Mercedes Linares, mayor of Madrid, stated that Social Services values the development of the program. This is especially true this year, since face-to-face classes were suspended due to the COVID19 epidemic. The completion of the course was very unusual. It was noted that the group was motivated and eager to take part. We are grateful for your involvement and for being so creative.
The La Tejuela Multipurpose Social Center has taught 'Impulsate In Summer'. This includes reinforcement classes for ESO students and educational techniques, as well as workshops and outings. The group was also trained in skills that could be of use to them: historical and cultural context, artistic expression and creation, emotional intelligence, communication skills, affective-sexual Education, self-perception, postural hygiene, climate change awareness, digital tools, and educational guidance.
Sandra Quero, pedagogue and coordinator of the program, thanked the City Council for the participation of the group, Salvador Corrales, Victoria Cano, Jose Sanchez, Gelem Cale, and the CAPI de La Tejuela for their selfless participation in the edition.
These young people have had the chance to learn socio-educational skills and also have worked with digital tools. They have also been able to get closer to the culture and history of the town through various visits, such as the one to the town hall.
The presentation of the program took place at the beginning July. It was noted that more than 40 requests from local educational centers for participation were received this year. The results and balance of this project were extremely positive in the previous edition. This encouraged the launch the second edition.
