The Youth House is born in May '99, and following a decree of the Ministry of Finance has received in loan by the Municipality of Castelvetrano (TP) agricultural land cultivated with vineyards, olive grove and orchard confiscated from one of the Sicilian Mafia boss , Bernardo Provenzano.
The House of Youth in this property is implementing a social and employment reintegration project for former drug addicts who have completed a Therapeutic Program at the Ser.T or Community. The project is of great importance from the point of view of social welfare that the political and pedagogical point of view: that of the Mafia assets, in fact, are used to help addicts who are the main victims of the Mafia speculation, is a strong educational message is for young people who were to be tempted to give in to the lure of the criminal organizations and is for all those citizens who have so far offered a conspiratorial cover to the members of the mafia gangs because they considered them as the givers of wealth and only holders of a real power social, however, imposed by force.
The installation of a real farm led already to make an extra virgin olive oil that we called FREE, as that of the Association chaired by Don Luigi Ciotti, to whom we owe the law on confiscation of Mafia assets. Young people working in Collision PROJECT benefit from working scholarships established to respond to the opportunity to not falling into welfare-forms overcome and miseducating, and comply with the need to meet the economic needs of those who, for many years, was cut off from all working circuit.
