ICARO – PROGRAMME COORDINATOR
Icaro is a non-profit consortium of social cooperatives created in 1995 with the aim of formulating a concrete answer to the problems of groups at risk of social exclusion. In recent years, the Icaro Consortium has expanded its sphere of interest – with a focus on children at risk of involvement in criminal activities – and the socially vulnerable (elderly, children, mentally and physically disabled, drug addicts, immigrants, unemployed young people etc.), creating “personal services”, socio-educational support and social services, employment, education, national service, as well as managing residential and semi-residential care facilities intended for these clients.
Icaro also manages services and projects on behalf of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, in the Campania Region, working with Local Authorities providing health and social services. In recent years, Icaro has expanded into Europe, by creating and strengthening partnerships with public and private bodies from different Member States, helping to analyse social problems and work out together the best methods for their resolution. We have managed, projects funded by the European Commission, as well as the present ICAM programme. For the realisation of this programme, Icaro, thanks to the collaboration of local associations, has identified different partner schools with Children Affected by Migration (CAM).
