The Foundation was founded in 2015 together with those specialists who have taken active part in youth affairs for years. Our goal was to create a new organization, which can directly help the community, especially young people. The main goal of the foundation is to equip the youth with special knowledge and skills that can help them fit in any community, and predispose them to care about problems in our society, and motivates them to be active citizens. We deliver these goals by organizing talent development programs and trainings.
We define our activities along three guidelines:
Education in human rights: Our goal is to make phrases like tolerance, democracy, equality of opportunity etc. the norms. We are committed to help creating a society wherein every member of the community understands, respects and protects human rights.
Active citizenship: These days the passivity and the lack of active participation from the youth are huge problems. We believe that the young generation must have a voice, they must be active in shaping our democracy, and they must be part of the decision-making. We hope to achieve this by setting up regular conversations with decision-makers. Our programs help and support active participation.
Improvement by games: In today’s modern world the youth can take in knowledge and skills in a way that is fascinating and exciting at the same time. That’s why we are engaged in this topic: we use tools that are interesting for the younger generation. We use both offline and online games as part of implementing our goals.
