The relationship between the socio-educacional rehabilitation imprisonmet and future projects of adolescents who committed offenses is central to overcome the vulnerability condition associated with the practice of offenses. This study aimed to investigate, through a multiple cases study, the future projects of adolescents deprived of freedom for socio-educational rehabilitation. The aforementioned adolescents presented different future projects that involved positives aspects (family, work, study and acquisition of material goods), negative (revenge) and uncertainty. Adolescents with positive future projects need to be encouraged and supported to accomplish them, while adolescents with negative or uncertain projects need attention to overcome this condition and to develop positive projects. These results reinforce the need to provide individualized care, considering the peculiarities of each case, and the importance of the articulation among socio-educational programs and policies concerning education, professionalization, work and income.
