Co-funded by: The ERASMUS+ Programme, Key Action 2, Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education action.


The “STEPs” project aims to give opportunities to prisoners, to free them from ignorance, social awkwardness and “disability” and to offer them support and restorative experience to escape from the vicious circle of marginalization, crime and unemployment. The way to break this cycle is to foster confidence, to live by using legal means and to avoid the recurrence, so as to choose education and training before their release and through this facilitate job finding and avoid marginalization, unemployment and eventual criminality. The project will produce innovative VR training material (Virtual Reality Rooms), which will be used in prison schools and rehabilitation centers.
