Association “Professional Forum for Education”, based in Sofia, Bulgaria, has the aim of involving young people in the non-formal educational process, promote intercultural dialogue, youth mobility, volunteering and outdoor activities. It has as well the purpose of fostering young people’s will to express their opinion on themes, relevant to the European citizenship, to solve problems in a non-conflict way and to help developing a sense of tolerance and understanding of diversity.
These goals are realized by a number of specific activities provided by the organization, such as seminars, courses, conferences, summer and winter trainings and realization of youth activities on local and national level on topics like European citizenship, employment and entrepreneurship, volunteering, human rights. These activities are designed both for pedagogues who would like to integrate non-formal educational methods in the classroom, and for young people who are motivated to learn more on these subjects and to be an active part of society.
Association “Scambieuropei” was established in 2009. The main purpose of the organization is finding opportunities for young Italian people to experience European (or extra-European) mobility, through the promotion of job offers, scholarships, internships, volunteering, and intercultural exchanges. Scambieuropei came into existence as a solution to a lack of access to information. It is an open space where young people can find free end edited information in order to gain new skills, foster their employability or simply have a sharp look on Europe. It undertakes several initiatives promoting and enhancing active European citizenship, intercultural communication, social integration, and fields like media and journalism. One of our main objectives is to stimulate multi-cultural meeting and reciprocal knowledge to encourage a more real and less rhetoric ideal of “European citizenship”, that is why since 2010 we are an accredited EVS sending and coordinating organization. Our main activities “live” and “side-by-side” are in Bologna, Northern Italy, where we have the operational office open to our volunteers and users. There we organize initiative by ourselves or together with other partners in the area (mainly other associations), but also meetings and training sessions about our international mobility programmes, including EVS. We also have our legal office in Central Italy and an info-point in Central Europe.
