YOUTH INCLUDED is a non-profit organization, based in Prague, Czech Republic, managed by a team of academics, youth workers and experts in the field of youth work, intercultural cooperation and diversity promotion.

YOUTH INCLUDED has been created as an open-space for open-minded, honest, creative and active young people who want to make a change in their communities. We commit ourselves to support, advice, guide and educate the youth by giving them a chance to develop and organize the project of their dream, by providing them opportunities to volunteer and experience other cultures, by showing them that changing the World can start with small steps to self-exploring, self-respecting, self-development and self-expressing.

Among our main aims are contribution to the positive social changes in the society by promoting intercultural dialogue, facilitating understanding among people and establishment of harmonic co-existence.

Our organization is working with young people as we do believe that the youth is the key to building of the future generations, therefore we have to put all the efforts to give them the tools for education, raise their awareness in regards to the dangers of xenophobia and discrimination, show them the diversity of the World and point out the positive effects of intercultural interactions.
