CIOFS-FP is a non-profit association established by C.I.O.F.S. in 1986, which coordinates the activities of the Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice (Daughters of Mary Help of Christians) of Italy involved in vocational training. It provides the following training services: initial, higher, continuous, permanent, alternating training and guidance. In particular, it deals with support in training courses and support in the active search for employment.
It offers services to the local communities and businesses, consultancy in the analysis of training needs and support for new forms of entrepreneurship. It works with other non-profit vocational training organizations, social entities, public institutions and business associations. The privileged recipients of CIOFS-FP activities are adolescents and young people, especially young women, with special attention to those who find themselves in conditions of difficulty or social hardship.
The mission of CIOFS-FP is to take care of young people by offering them guidance, training and opportunities for employment. Our target groups are individuals who have a special propensity for applying the principles of operativeness and experimentation.
We put at their service tools such as training projects, guidance activities and the possibility of working in a network referring to human and Christian values. Our goal is the development of a professional and cultural project that accompanies young people from their education to the workplace.
