We express our interest in participating in the platform, supporting and connecting transnational partners in the implementation of projects aimed at the realization and improvement of social connections, the overcoming of difficulties and borders between states within the EU. We are an organization with great potential and international experience and have partners, connections and contacts among our members as well as among socially active groups of young people seeking employment, internationalization, acquiring new knowledge and skills. We strongly believe that the ESF mediated and supported projects provide the best opportunities for these target groups to realize their potential and opportunities through international exchange with different organizations to aid in overcoming language, labor and social barriers. We have access to all local organizations and administrations, as well as active communication with them, and we can be a great mediator, which is why we offer organizations with shared funding projects to provide and work with actively social groups, skills and vocational training in different spheres, to be a partner in projects for the realization of mutually beneficial ideas. We are open to discussing specific ideas as well as to actively engage in projects of organizations seeking partners. We are convinced that by uniting our strengths, skills and contacts, we can be mutually beneficial to any organization that implements projects related to our common interests.
