Partnership

We are open to participate both short term and long term youth projects as well as volunteer sending activities. Our team members have experience with the following programs before: Erasmus+ KA1 and KA2, EU Aid Volunteers, GLEN, ESC (former EVS) and Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. We are ready to take part in all stages of the project – management, meetings, preparation, logistics, dissemination and of course professional work including research and development.

We are also searching for partners to join our short term and long term youth projects in different grant types like Erasmus+, European Solidarity Corps, Visegrad Fund, Europe for Citizens, etc. We believe in long term and beneficial partnerships but mutuality is not a criteria. Just be active, reliable, responsive and constructive - so, professional.
