b- Cooperation agreements with entities and other institutions for the realization of specific projects (classrooms of leisure activities and healthy leisure, pre-employment workshops, etc.), in areas of greater risk of social exclusion and dropouts, that promote the recruitment of these young people and their reintegration into the education system.
