By learning to face their fears and the obstacles that stand in front of them, the youngsters begin the path to autonomy. Nicolas, who has recently been living at the Foyer de Groupe Louis-Hémon, is preparing his intervention plan with Christian, his worker. Christian also accompanies Lily who receives the keys to her first apartment.
The youngsters realize the importance of being accompanied when it comes to navigating the freedom that comes with the transition to adulthood. With Christian's help, Lily cleans her new supervised apartment. Giulio presents us his daily life at the Neptune unit and shows his cooking skills to his worker, Luc.
As the climate of trust was not always present in the childhood of the youngsters of LA VIE APRÈS LA DPJ, they must gradually learn to trust those around them. This is what Lily deals with by confiding in her worker Christian in a moment of loneliness difficult to face.
In their progress towards autonomy, the youngsters of LA VIE APRÈS LA DPJ realize how difficult it is sometimes to make choices, to take decisions. Giulio, Nicolas and Lily each learn to make these choices in their own way. The youngsters also understand that making choices also means taking responsibility for the consequences of their actions.
Knowing how to buy groceries or tidy up one’s apartment may seem trivial, but it is a real challenge for youngsters who have often grown up without family role models. To get there, Lily visits a clothing distribution counter for the first time, and Alex, an ex-DPJ homeless person, talks about the reality of organizing in survival mode.
Jayson learns that an apartment has become available in a residence and he will gradually have to take care of himself outside the Youth Centre, Giulio is pleased by offering himself kitchen tools for his new apartment, and Nicolas enjoys the well-being of singing in a choir.
