At American Science Youth Walk, our hospitality approach is to welcome vulnerable people or groups who are outside the state reception system and lack means of subsistence and family-social networks.
We welcome migrants in situations of vulnerability and/or social exclusion. The “Hospitality” project is shown as the initiative of the Society of Jesus and the technical development is assumed by the Jesuit Migrant Service Valencia in coordination with the Arrupe Center and local entities that accompany migrants and refugees.
It offers coverage of basic needs (accommodation, meals, comprehensive social care, training, etc.), with the support of a qualified professional team and the essential human accompaniment with a network of volunteers.
This network has several different spaces for this program that are enabled for different types of reception. This creates a dynamic network that allows us to accompany different profiles of people/families at different times of their life projects.
