It is essential for us to support Russian-speaking youth workers in increasing their professional capacity in the international and digital youth work, volunteering activities, youth empowerment and value-based youth work.

We enrich the diversity of educational approaches by promoting the principles of non-formal education. Also, we involve more youth organisations, youth specialists and especially young people with fewer opportunities and special needs in youth work. We want more people to be aware of the values and qualities of the local and international youth work.
