PASQUIM, Heitor Martins; CAMPOS, Celia Maria Sivalli  y  SOARES, Cassia Baldini. Projects carried out by social institutions focused on young people: fragmented activities and disengagement of the government. Saude soc. [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.1, pp.198-205. ISSN 1984-0470.

The objective of this article is to analyze projects carried out by social institutions aimed at young pe ople. We performed a qualitative research conducted by interviews with employees of these institutions (private ones, but with public-funded projects). These projects had compensatory features and were developed through actions at different institutions, with the main purpose of responding to situations experienced by groups "at risk". The projects had an identification with a supposed classist conception of education, which reinforced the legitimacy of the social position of "needy" young people in the social hierarchy. Facing the limits exposed requires radical changes that induce fractures in the ideolo gy of control and tutelage of the State, promoting reorganizations that favor human emancipation.
