The TICS project works on two innovative components:
Help youth discover that it is possible to use online networks in a different way by finding on line people willing to listen and to accompany them. Youth will be encouraged to find a better balance between their virtual life and everyday life. It would indeed come to raise awareness on the cyber addiction’s serious consequences; because being online anytime - result of our modern lifestyle, increases the risk of depression and school dropout;
Encourage professionals to meet young people in an environment other than "on the street". It is necessary to discuss with professionals their current vision on ICT and their impact on the world and on young people they accompany, in order to end with “the digital divide." The use of ICT in the socio-educational support will be the subject of an experiment in the framework of this project.
