In 1997 PANIAMOR began to implement a new programme that includes a research
component. The Center for Youth Alternatives (as it is tentatively named)
will open its doors in September 1997, offering a wide range of services
for adolescents who are at risk and for adolescents who may become at risk.
The services include educational support, mental health care, health education,
employment counselling and vocational training, and recreational and cultural
activities. The applied research conducted by the Center will be used to
guide future programme development and to formulate national youth policies.
