The webinar aims at presenting the experience of the Olga Stoyanova Orphanage in Dupnitsa, Bulgaria, in working with young people who are about to leave the service. Lecturers will present their experience in implementing the project's developed methodology to work with young people (The "Fulfilling (Im)Possible Dreams" Project, funded by the European Commission's Justice Program, implemented by the Know-How Centre for Alternative Care for Children, NBU) as well as their experience in extending the services for young people who are about to leave and who have already left the services for children and young people without parental care. The topics will be reviewed via the presentation of a specific case of a young man who wants to live on his own, wants to become a hairdresser and is actively involved in the fulfillment of his own dreams.

The webinar is intended for all professionals working in the social field.
