Il faut s'adresser très tôt aux facteurs de vulnérabilités Un éducateur révèle les forces d'une jeune fille qui se prostituait
« Un jour, j’ai vu arriver une jeune fille – appelons-la Fatima- dans mon centre. Fatima avait du caractère, elle me semblait très dynamique. Il suffisait de voir la manière de s’habiller, son portable. En même temps, je voyais que la jeune fille était sous tension. Elle m’expliqua qu’elle était en conflit avec sa mère, qui se doutait bien comment elle se procurait ses vêtements de marque et son téléphone dernier cri ! Je me dis qu’elle ferait une bonne actrice, et je l’ai invitée à jouer un grand rôle dans la pièce de théâtre que nous étions en train de monter. Malgré leur conflit, sa maman est venue à la première. La maman était toute fière de voir sa fille sur les planches, sa fille toute heureuse de voir sa maman dans la salle. Les deux se sont réconciliées, et Fatima a trouvé dans le théâtre un exutoire pour son énergie débordante ! »

création d'un observatoire des vulnérabilités
« Moi, dit-il, je suis professeur de bio dans un collège de Casa. Vous savez, l’argent facile circule ici. Alors, avec un groupe de jeunes, nous avons mis en place dans le collège un observatoire des vulnérabilités. Ainsi, nous avons remarqué que deux jeunes gens étaient en train de changer d’attitude. Leur façon de s’habiller, de se coiffer, leur démarche… puis ils étaient moins assidus au cours…. . Nous les avons invités et partagé avec eux nos observations. Les jeunes gens ont admis qu’ils se prostituaient : ‘Les filles le font bien, pourquoi pas nous ?’ Nous avons exploré ensemble les conséquences de leur attitude.»
