Portugal: Psychosocial Support Office and Scholarships among ambitions of the Maense Association

Lisbon, Sept 2 (Inforpress) – The Maense Association in Portugal (AMP), which completes 19 years of existence this week, has among its future ambitions the installation of a Psychosocial Support Office and Scholarships to students.

Speaking to Inforpress in Lisbon, as part of the Association’s anniversary, created on August 29, 2003, the president of AMP, Carlos Frederico, said that since 2014 the organization has started betting more on the field of youth education with some partnerships has been growing and today the partners are seeking the Association, because of its credibility.

“Since then, we already have young people who have completed their training and are working. It’s young people who are the future of the world. For example, I still have the desire to have had the opportunity to attend a higher education. That’s what moves me and makes me help young people achieve and achieve their dreams,” he said, indicating that AMP’s focus ranges from vocational to higher education, with vocational technical courses, higher vocational technical courses, bachelor’s degrees, postgraduate and master’s degrees.

By working and helping young students to continue their studies in Portugal, AMP also monitors them, has access to grades, organizes activities in the cities where they study, but wants to go further, creating a Psychosocial Support Office, something that should happen “soon”, since the Association is just waiting for the City Hall of Lisbon to provide a social store for this,  taking into account that the head office “is small”.
