WHAT WE DO
YOUTH and Adult PROJECTS
We gather together youth and adults and provide them with best knowledge and technics to make their potential shine, never mind through our great partners or everything organized by us.
We offer young people the chance to make a difference through the European Voluntary Service. EVS gives young people the opportunity to express their personal commitment through full-time voluntary work in a foreign country within or outside the EU.
Our volunteers and team members use their expirience and knowledge in organizing different community activities from intercultural sharing to raising awareness of some very serious topics.
