ASK Yourself NGO (Youth NGO)

ASK Yourself is a non-profit organization created by a group of youth workers that wanted to share the power of Erasmus+
and non-formal education. We are very passionate about non-formal learning, new cultures and volunteering. We want to
encourage young people to try new and exciting learning opportunities, to discover themselves, to improve their
competences, and to give back to society. We offer support in finding the right project/challenge for each individual and we
are happy to start voluntary projects that start from young people’s initiative.
We think that Erasmus+ is a chance to discover yourself, while discovering Europe. This is why we organized projects and
send young people and youth workers in projects all over the world. Until now, we sent more than 150 people to projects all
over Europe.
We try to do projects both for young people and for youth workers. For us, the main focus is the person and not the activity:
we consider that the actions that we implement are just a way to improve ourselves, to become better persons and by
being better persons to help create a better society. We work a lot with young students(age 13-18), the people who can
help us create a better society for the future. We encourage them to write youth exchanges according to their interest;
therefore we have a diversity of projects from guitar lessons to ecology.
Since 2015, we organized more than 15 international projects (YE and TC) that started from young people’s passions and
needs. These projects gathered over 250 young people and 100 youth workers from all over Europe. We were happy to
meet them and to play a part in their lives, while trying to make a small change in each community. Our activities combined
education with community involvement: we had workshops in over 20 high schools, we talked with hundreds of students
and we encouraged teachers to use non-formal education. During this projects, participants also planted trees, organized
sport events, promoted NGOs, made videos, told stories and the list can go on.
