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 Solidarity Corps. ESC 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.
Alternativi International provides educational and proffesional services , cultural and social experience, contacts and work placements in many private nad public organziations respecting the target audiance in the field of VET.
