General information




In the context of the economic crisis that crosses our country, the social structure has suffered transformations, marked by the deepening of the inequality in the distribution and by the poverty; and a process of social fragmentation characterized by the breakup of the primary relationships and the difficulties to develop collective strategies to  overcome the social conditioning and emergent obstacles due to this context.

The family institution, fundamental in the social reproduction, suffers deeply the multiple destructive effects of the growth of the poverty that generates a high vulnerability index and it causes damages in the socio-affective relationships.

The emergent manifestations of this situation are, among other: the violation of  the rights of the children and adolescents, the alcoholism, the drug addiction, the delinquency, the exclusion from the formal educational system, the insufficient preparation to face the labor system, etc. The classic interventions interested only what is emergent or the symptoms of the problem. A new and complementary intervention is needed.


Origin of the Community Educational Center “San José


The Community Educational CenterSan José” arises in the year 2000, as answer to the community of Villa Bosch that demands new intervention forms and participation. It is constituted as a space where solidarity is lived, in the search of a more fraternal and just society.

Non lucrative Associations and groups linked to diverse religious communities always existed. The newness is this widespread conscience of the task that they can develop in a society whose institutions are in constant transformation. There is a function of participation in the bond existing among the citizen and the problems of its collectivity that it is assigned increasingly to the organizations of the civil society.
