The Province of Arezzo is the leading partner of the Ariadne’s Thread For Youth Deviance project – supported by the European Union as part of the Erasmus + Sport Program, a project carried out in partnership with the I Care Association – Arezzo, the National Institute for Sport of Nova Goriza – Slovenia, the Municipality of Katerini – Greece and Riga Vocational Volleyball School – Latvia. The focus of the project is youth discomfort, with a series of initiatives involving the world of school and that of sport. The target group of the project is mainly high school, youth, but also families, school, teachers, as well as sports associations. The next phase of the project involves the realization of seminars for students, teachers and trainers and parents, with the aim of helping people involved in the education and growth of young people to recognize the first signs of deviance and marginality before the situation gets worse. For this reason, two webinar seminars were organized by expert teachers of the CONI Regional School of Sport.

The meeting with Dr. Cenerini provided operational ideas useful to intercept those signs of discomfort that can prelude to an early abandonment of sporting activity. The purpose of these seminars is to support adults involved in the growth and education of young people, raising awareness on the issue of prevention and recognition of the first signs of marginality and evasion, a phenomenon unfortunately very widespread among young people.
