We specialize in projects related to non-formal education and intercultural learning mostly addressed to young people between 18 and 30 years old, trying to include participants with fewer opportunities. Our main activities are related to Erasmus+: Youth Program, financed by the European Commission whose objective is to promote the education through low costs international mobility projects and to improve the skills of the young people, organizations and youth workers. In particular, we promote activities related to Erasmus+ Program, such as: European Solidarity Corps (ESC), International Exchanges, Training Courses, Capacity Building and Strategic Partnerships, etc.

We are the founding partner of RIVE (Italian Net of European Volunteering), a volunteering association that gathers several Italian organizations with the purpose of promoting international mobility among youth, in particular through European Solidarity Corps. In the last few years we extended our work succeeding in providing more and more volunteering opportunities even outside of Europe, thanks to the work camps, international volunteering and Capacity Building projects in partnership with organizations from Africa, Asia and South America.
