If children are candidates to enter the programs at Casa CODENI, educators invite them to the Espacio de Juego (Play Space) three evenings per week in the University of Guadalajara’s downtown library. With regular participation at the library during one to three months, they can transition to the programs at Casa CODENI known as Círculo CODENI. During these initial months, educators work to explain to the child and his or her family how as an empowerment project CODENI differs from other welfare‐based assistance programs. They also coordinate socioeconomic studies and psychological tests with the family and ensure that they understand the benefits and expectations of CODENI. In addition to these processes of direct accompaniment, CODENI street educators are responsible for maintaining a log of information about the actors, initiatives and occurrences in the different networks of street populations in Guadalajara.
