Youth social inclusion has always been one of our main areas of activity. From its first steps, CSF has worked in youth centres as the Centro Babele in the complicated district of Albergheria in Palermo.
In May 2014 we moved to Via De Spuches near Politeama Theatre, opening together with the Circolo Culturale Arci The Factory, the PYC – Palermo Youth Centre. PYC results from these two associations’ will of creating spaces for young people from Palermo and from elsewhere, where to gather and take part in socially useful activities, language, art and music courses, and cultural events, like concerts or extemporary art exhibitions.
In June 2017 we inaugurated “La Nuova Villa Trabia”, another cultural centre located inside the splendid setting of Villa Trabia in Palermo. Thanks to the Youth Department’s loan and to the concession of the property by the municipality of Palermo, we restored the structure and made it available for Palermo’s citizenship to enjoy it. Art courses, music lessons and creative recycling workshops are organised within the structure, as well as an infodesk about youth mobility opportunities.
