The Protection System for Children and Adolescents in Spain has the same mechanisms for the national population as it does for the foreign population of children and Young people who are originally from Latin American. This research aimed to determine the specific emancipation difficulties of youths from Latin America with a Child Protective Service record, as well as to identify effective strategies for socio-educational actions. Using a qualitative methodology within the grounded theory framework, six longitudinal monitoring studies and four life story narrations are conducted with protected young people. The study concluded with two discussion groups with specialized professional figures. The results reveal deficits in educational accompaniment, especially as a result of the collision between migratory project goals and the rigidity of the education system. The absence of social support networks to contribute to their emancipation is confirmed.
