Participants are youngsters from alternative care. They are form some kind of institutional care (Home for children and youth and residential apartments that are under Community service centres). They are from different parts of Croatia: Sisak, Selce, Lipik and Koprivnica.

Participants coming from institutional care – 4 are from 16 -18 years and 4 from 18-21. Four are female and four are male.
Trainers presented to the participants modules:
1. Career and job related skills
2. Money management
These topics, according to trainers, were the most attractive to participants. They think and worry a lot about finding proper job and about their abilities to manage money since they don’t have to do that – they just have pocket money, a small amount, and all other expenses are arrange and managed by the institution. They do not have opportunity to practice money management.
Trainer organized lecture and discussion with participants before playing a game in Sisak. In the other 3 towns it was done through discussions with those that have been selected for participating in the game - discussion about information presented on web page FYIL.
The implementation of the online game involved young adults living in Aftercare Centers of the Child protection system. These youngsters are between 20 and 30 years old and have grown up in a child protection system. When they reach the age of 18, they must leave the child protection system, if they are not continuing their education. Young people who have nowhere to go, they don’t have the support of their biological families, and cannot support themselves, can use the possibility to become beneficiary of the Aftercare Center.
The After Care Center also has a sheltered residential home where young people over 18 live, but these young people are mentally disabled (middle and mildly handicapped). These young people have also tried the online game.
Are you ready for adulthood?
Playing this game will help you become an independent adult.
The participants were over 16 children in care and young people in aftercare living in various children’s and aftercare homes at Budapest and in Pest County. Some of them are still in education, some already in the job market, but unable to maintain themselves.

The young people who attended the IO2 Local testing sessions of the YIL online games were UNACCOMPANIED FOREIGN MINORS aged 16 - 26 and living in residential facilities for unaccompanied minors (mostly community-based facilities) managed by 2 associated cooperatives of the cO&SO consortium: cooperativa Odissea in Lucca and cooperativa Il Cenacolo in Firenze.

Participants were: 6 from Nigeria, 4 from Guinea, 4 from Gambia, 4 from Ivory Coast, 3 from Mali, 1 from Ghana, 1 from Somalia and 1 from Bangladesh. However, only around 15 of them tried the on-line games supported by their educators (see below).
