BAChosting families

The BAChosting Families programme aims to promote the integration of young migrants living in
one of our BACstations by housing them directly with a family.

When volunteers open up their homes, not only is it possible to meet our students’ basic board and
lodging needs, but it also allows them to create a new family circle and build self-esteem, stability
and support.

Hosting lasts six months and is complemented by comprehensive support for the student by
BarcelonActua and regular monitoring throughout the hosting process.

The hosting process consists of:

  • The first meeting: We organise a meeting between the student, the host family and the foundation in a relaxed setting to establish initial contact.
  • Establishment of a six-month hosting agreement to define the terms of the hosting process, the duties of the student and the host family and the support of BAC. This agreement includes an initial one-month trial to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
  • Monthly monitoring of the students being hosted: BarcelonActua will closely monitor the development of students and the objectives defined in their work plan to offer BAC families as much support as possible.
  • Monthly follow-up with BAC families: This monthly meeting aims to ensure an excellent hosting experience, answer questions, share challenges and promote solutions.
Lines of work
  • Languages and training
    Language is a key tool that not only helps with socialisation and fosters autonomy and a connection with the environment, but also provides access to training to enhance employability. Thus, students attend group and individual Catalan and Spanish classes at BACstation shelters or at the Llar del Raval. In addition, all those who meet the entry requirements can attend different training courses that are relevant to them. This increases their chances of finding a job when the administrative and legal process allows it.
  • Legal and administrative support
    We carry out comprehensive monitoring of the administrative and legal circumstances of all our students to ensure that everyone enjoys equal rights and can gain access to the world of training and employment. This is done through our Legal and Administrative Itinerary team and the volunteer lawyers who support and advise us on how to carry out all necessary procedures.
  • Employability and support during the emancipation process
    All students with current asylum applications, with possibilities for social, job or training stability, or with a foreigner’s identification number (NIE) are referred to the employment insertion itinerary where they work with coaches to improve their job-seeking skills and access contact information for the entities and companies with which we network to promote diversity in different work environments.

    Once students have been placed in a job, we continue to support them in their search for accommodation until they achieve complete autonomy.
  • Socialisation
    One of the mainstays of our support involves creating an ecosystem of volunteers for each student through the different BAC activities (language classes, recreational activities, Toma&Daca volunteering, etc.). All interactions allow students to gradually create a social circle of trust in the city.
  • Psychological and emotional care
    No comprehensive support system would be complete without emotional support. For this reason, we work to create support spaces through specialists, training capsules, workshops and listening circles to help our students learn how to manage and express their feelings, emotions and concerns associated with the real-life situations they encounter.
