"3T L'importanza di un terzo tempo per l'oratorio" - ANSPI - € 22,000
The UniCredit Foundation supported the "3T L'importanza di un terzo tempo per l'oratorio" project to stand by parish center leaders and teachers in facing educational challenges
The "3T L'importanza di un terzo tempo per l'oratorio" project (The importance of free time for parish youth centers), supported by the UniCredit Foundation, leverages the ANSPI Association's longstanding experience in education and social activities, redeveloping and redefining it to face the new emergencies that the global pandemic has exacerbated. Oratori, or parish youth centers, recognized as an informal education agency by Italian society, were the first to resume in-person recreational and educational
activities, highlighting the strong need for younger generations to socialize and the susceptibility to which they are exposed. For their project, ANSPI chose to support educators, aiding them in facing their new normal, which requires more skills, attention, and tools to meet the educational challenges that Covid 19 helped to amplify.
Specifically, the UniCredit Foundation contributed to the planning, editing and distribution of two publications to support the centers' normal and summer operations. They include games, activities, exercises, stories and scenarios that are useful in supporting educators and providing excitement for preteens. Printed on recycled paper in lots of
2,500 and 4,000 copies, in addition to also being available online, they also include a special section with games and activities to create a playful approach to studying, as well as instructions for leaders and parents to complement their children's learning.
