RESUMEN ǀ ABSTRACT ǀ RESUMO

Sociocultural shifts have changed the pathways of young people towards their adult life. This paper presents the Progressive and Secular Movement of Aragon and the methodology it uses, “The Fivefold Structure”, as a citizenship school. The research is carried out in Confluencias18, through a series of interviews. Through the analysis four stories are constructed. The first, delves into the history of the MLPA. The second, addresses the trajectories of young people. Third, the characteristics of the MLPA are emphasized as an alternative educational space. Finally, the value of militancy in the development of young people is analyzed. Values are worked from non-formal education, leisure and free time. This work enables their entry to adulthood. Young people develop an identity and become aware of citizenship at the same time they are deciding their level of participation and commitment.
