The two trainees are recruited for an eight-month internship to acquire the skills that are requested of such a professional figure, namely the capacity to relate with individuals and with a group, the willingness to listen to the needs of youth and the territory in general, as well as a commitment to continuous learning and updating on issues that are closely related to the young.
