In 2015, after my graduation in Social Work, I worked as a social worker in a Juvenile Correction Home, where I had the first-hand experience of working with 60-80 juveniles. Juvenile Correction Home is a space for children in conflict with the law, which strives for a holistic development of children through education, vocational training and personality development. The correction home also promotes physical and mental well-being through psychosocial counseling, recreational activities and individual care.

Teaching challenges

Over the past few months, I had the opportunity to lead a skills lab for bachelor’s degree students of social work, trying to help them bridge the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge. There is no training that can make a youth completely ready for a job as only a continuous and engaging “on the job” experience can help her become the best she can be.
