This research forms part of a larger Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I) project and its objective is the carrying out a number of participatory research projects aimed at fostering the social presence of socially vulnerable groups (without a voice). In this paper, we will analyse the project carried out by a group of six young people who are complying with judicial measures in an open environment, three researchers, and three social educators. These agents make up the team of co-researchers. This is a research based on the qualitative tradition and with a participatory orientation. The objective of the inquiry process undertaken by the group is to give visibility to the world of young people and to be recognised in the public sphere. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the most important achievements of the research process that make it participatory and to critically examine a number of difficulties or obstacles to participation that have arisen during the process and the learning processes that have taken place in order to overcome them.
