Once the child has accepted to change and improve their habits of life, begins their process of awareness for the construction of a better present and a promising future. From the teachings of Papá Jaime, “Never, never stop dreaming, put wings to imagination and landing gear to dreams”, children and adolescents begin to plan their lives directing their efforts to achieve new goals that will allow you to find the path to your inner harmony.

Children and adolescents must prepare themselves to return to their family and society.
