Gijón/Xixón City Council's Mayoress, Carmen Moriyón Entrialgo, presided the closing act of the second annuity for the project Make, Learn, Share: Europe in an event that recognized the work done and the success acquired at the Global Junior Challenge in Rome. This act valued the admirable work carried out by the Second Opportunity School (E2O) through the project, bringing technology closer to the youths most separated from the education world and motivating them to get educated in professions with a bright future.
The educational team and the alumni from the Second Opportunity School met yesterday at the Council House to attend the official ceremony celebrating the prize given to Gijón's E2O at the Global Junior Challenge. The Mayoress' invitation focused on thanking the work carried out and praised a programme trying to reduce the percentages of school leaving thanks to the youths "finding here a place to go back into the education world or the labour market, while learning to participate and educate themselves", said Pelayo Barcia, General Director for Employment, Markets and Consumption for Gijón/Xixón City Council.

The Second Opportunity School's coordinator, Rosana Serrano Barro, praised the teamwork, an essential aspect to achieve the first prize in the category "ICTs to train youth to obtain initial job placements" at the Global Junior Challenge. Furthermore, she wanted to use this opportunity to emphasize the importance of these types of projects for the most vulnerable youths, since it is a way of transitioning to normalized resources, as well as a socio-educational resource to fulfill the demands and needs of youths from our municipality.

Miguel Ángel Acero, the expert in the Digital Growth Area from CTIC Foundation, showed his compromise with the Second Opportunity School for sharing a common philosophy where education is bounded to technology as an additional competence highly valued, as well as commending the cooperative learning carried out by the young participants.

To finish the act, we visualized an audiovisual presentation about the trajectory and the activities developed throughout this second annuity, and as a climax we had the point of view of two of the participating Technological Ambassadors about their experience, a moment where they thanked all the people involved that made this project a reality, as well as recommending others to participate in these types of programmes.

Finally, we would like to thank again for the award that has motivated us so much, and even more, we promise to keep working towards the socio-educative inclusion of our youth, as well as all the congratulations received by our School.

Make, Learn, Share: Europe is a European project aimed at promoting technological education amongst youth (from 14 to 18 years old) and creates ICTs Ambassadors. It is a new project funded by the European Programme + (KA 3). Developed in our city by Gijón/Xixón City Council's Second Opportunity School and CTIC Foundation.
