Title: ‘La Aventura de la Vida’
Summary: The aim of ‘La Aventura de la Vida’ (Life’s adventure), which targets children from the ages of 8 to 12, is to further healthy living habits, stressing the prevention of tobacco, non-prescription drugs and alcohol use in the context of the worldwide network of Health Promoting Schools. ‘La Aventura de la Vida’ is designed to respond to teachers' need for a structured, readily implemented and motivating programme to broach health education in the classroom. The programme addresses the physical, mental and social dimensions of health and relates the educational activities proposed to other subject areas, such as harmonious co-existence or environmental education. While implemented primarily in the school environment, the programme extends outward from there to families and the community at large. This programme: • is based on what has been internationally proven to be the most effective theoretical model: teaching living skills; • targets an age group (8 to 12) of particular preventive significance, both for its position in the antechamber of the potential introduction to drug use and its high receptivity and plasticity to the shaping of lifestyles; • exerts considerable social impact, and is widely and continually implemented across our education system. >>

Title: Sosyal Aktiviteler Projesi – Social Activities Project
Summary: The aim of the project is to employ high-school students with activities in drug-free environments. The project is run by Istanbul Police Department with the cooperation of education departments and city municipalities in Istanbul. The project is particularly implemented in high-risk areas and schools where infrastructural capacity is low and risk of substance use is high. Besides its vulnerable residents, Istanbul also attracts many domestic immigrants from Anatolia. This population is mostly located in ghettos or inner parts of the city. Students in these places are not able to engage in youth activities. They spend most of their time at streets and malls without doing anything. As a result, the more time in unsupervised settings, the more risk of substance use. Therefore, the project aims to attract students and employ them with activities (sport, cultural, art, handcraft etc.) in their own social environment. The municipalities provide trainers, equipments, and places for youth. School counsellors motivate students to participate in activities and monitor their enrolment/attendance. Students in programmes are required to participate in activities twice a week. Beside coordination and evaluation tasks, police give seminars about substances and consequences of substance use. It is expected that when students leave the streets and participate in youth activities, they are less likely to use substances. The activities under adult supervision provide them with a drug-free environment and enable them to engage in positive activities in their free time. Trainers do not only entertain them, but also teach them self-discipline and risk of substance use. This natural protection helps students to improve their skills and to adopt conventional lifestyles. The intervention is implemented during educational terms and evaluated with pre- and post-test design surveys. This project is still implemented in three districts of Istanbul. >>

Concerning the "network" MAG-NET, knowledge, resources, services and materials of the different partners have been collected, a data base of existing services had been set up, two trans-border symposiums were organised and a web page was launched (http://mag-net.eu).Concerning "school" MAG-Net, a working group aiming at the development of prevention material in school settings was set up, there was an exchange of existing materials and their translation, a development of new materials concerning age group 13 to 16 years and an evaluation of the material. A data base of working material and projects was also set up (http://mag-net.eu/bdd/index_de.php).

Title: Projecto Crescer Mudando
Summary: The GAP (Cabinet for social and psychological support) appears through the project “Crescer Mudando” (to grow and to change), promoted by GATO and financed by IDT. This is a part of the “Eixo de Intervenção da Prevenção” (to intervene and to prevent programme) and it is a result of the diagnosis that was carried within the city of Faro, which includes the parishes of Sé, São Pedro and Montenegro. This project started on the 1st December 2008 and ended on the 30th November 2010. After an evaluation carried out by the team in IDT, the project was given another 2 years to function. The GAP intended to be an asset to the local community, from both social and psychological approaches, by promoting the development of individual social and personal competences which would allow children and teenagers to more effectively deal with risky behaviours, delinquency and social exclusion. The GAP also provided support to adults and families who were at risk and vulnerable from the social and psychological point of view. Thus, the goals were to effectively intervene in order to resolve or at least minimize problem situations encountered throughout the City , namely: petty thefts in social neighbourhoods (cars, stores, houses, wallets), absenteeism at school, drug and alcohol addiction, juvenile delinquency, violence at home, poverty, trafficking, criminality, juvenile prostitution (mainly male), and violence and risk behaviour in general. Our actions succeeded in putting the target population for this project in contact with healthy life style situations, which were unknown for the majority of them, and that further stimulated the use of the learned competences to build a more structured life for themselves. A project such as this, in order to succeed, has to be based on trust. Therefore, we developed a lot of field work, going door to door, letting people know about our goals and our willingness to help. It is true that the governmental entities that exist and have the mission to intervene do not have the necessary capacity to respond quickly, as they have a great number of cases to respond to. In the same manner, the existing IPSS do not have these types of actions on a regular basis. Our project, through GAP, was therefore a necessary and innovative one, especially in what concerns psychological support, and a number of different social and educational responses, all in one same project. Our project has been praised and recognized by a number of institutions, namely Algarve University, João de Deus High School, who have worked closely with us by offering to receive a number of trainees. Besides the team that will be mentioned on another point, we had several volunteers working on our project. >>
