BRONDANI, Renata Petry et al. Journeys of young people in contexts of social vulnerability: a longitudinal study. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-25. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study seeks to understand the meanings attributed by young people in contexts of social vulnerability to their life paths. The research has a qualitative character and was carried out with five young people who, in 2012, had participated in a documentary that addressed the life experiences of adolescents at an Open School. From the report of the participants and the longitudinal character of this study, it was found that the experiences of entering the adult world marked by situations of violence, risks, exclusionary contexts and vulnerabilities hinder the implementation of their projects and bring particularities to the experience of this period of transitions. As final considerations, the importance of investments in actions that can overcome the crossings of vulnerabilities is highlighted, as a way to avoid possible stigmas that are part of certain contexts. The relevance of the longitudinal character of this research is emphasized, since, by having listened to the young people at two different moments, the possibilities of understanding their life paths were expanded.

Keywords : Adolescents; Youngsters; Social vulnerability; Social exclusion.
