The Don Bosco Confederation is an association that works together with the Youth Federations and Centers in defense and promotion of childhood and youth, especially those at risk of exclusion, through the role of youth and Don Bosco’s educational style.
The Don Bosco Confederation is currently made up of 9 Federations that act in 14 Autonomous Communities and which, in turn, comprise 127 Youth Centers. In total, more than 4,000 volunteersserve approximately 55,700 beneficiaries in various programs and actions. In addition, we have the help of a hundred hired people who complete the educational and management work in the entities.
The Salesians and theDaughters of Mary Help of Christians update the Educational Project of Saint John Bosco and Saint Mary Mazzarello, offering a concrete educational proposal and helping to identify the fundamental axes of Salesian educational action in our oratories and youth centers.
The manifestations of current culture are shaped, in a resounding way, through free time, and around it, personal and social life is organized. Especially young people find in free time and leisure an opportunity for self-realization, and it is an expression of their personal identity.
In the Salesian Youth Centers, work has been carried out since 1991 so that the Oratories and Youth Centers are educational structures in free time, widely called and capable of involving youth in the development of their own growth. In order to favor the convergence between the different realities of all our entities distributed throughout the national territory, the Educational Proposal for Oratories and Youth Centers was developed in 1988, the last update being in 2007.
