It officially starts today at the new venue of Etna Hitech’s headquarters, Wake up, a project funded by European Union and Regione Sicilia within the Operative Project FSE Sicilia 2007-2013.
Wake up, coordinated by Dr Antonietta Schembri from Etna Hitech, is aimed at giving opportunities for social and working inclusions to subjects with psychiatric disorders. The project integrates orientation, education, internship and work experience, with the possibility to create a social enterprise. The aim of the course is the support to working inclusion for disadvantaged subjects in an innovative and qualified professional sector such as documents digitalization and optical filing system.
The whole Etna Hitech staff, as teachers, tutors and secretaries, will be occupied during the next months in this important social project, that will be a growing opportunity also for the employees of the firm. The group of teachers and tutors will help the students to leave their “patient” status and come back (or enter for the first time) to the world of work with proper tools.
