Study Visit "Youth work reality in Southern Ukraine"

Ukraine was the first country visited by SALTO EECA in 2004. Since that time the number of international youth activities increased significantly. It's one of the most active country within the Youth in Action Programme in the region of Eastern Europe and Caucasus. Beside that, there are regions which are still not active in the field of international youth cooperation. Therefore SALTO EECA decided to organise the Study Visit which will explore the youth work reality in these regions... We invite you to visit Southern Ukraine! Let's discover this region together!
