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 experience and knowledge in organizing different community activities from intercultural sharing to raising awareness of some very serious topics with people from different backgrounds.
Association Alternativi International
It's a non-governmental, non-profit making organization working in the territory of Blagoevgrad region. The main objective is to encourage personal and professional development of young people as well as adults through non formal education and also the building up and development of active citizenship among them. The organization is an alternative for young people in the region to realize their potential and become an active part of the society. "Alternativi International” is founded by people seeking the positive change for young people and adults in Bulgaria. For that reason the main target groups are youngsters aged between 17 and 30 years old and Adults 30 - 50 years old
