History in details:
From the beginning our center was organizing events of non-formal, evening education like language clubs, personal growth sessions, seminars, youth events etc. for the general audience from the local community in Vinnytsia (Ukraine). Beyond this we're involved in organizing of international workcamping - we've organized camps in Ukraine and sent many our participants to the camps in the EU and Ukraine (cooperating with the SCI network). Thanks to this work-camping activity we’ve gained a lot of partners and ties on the periphery of our Vinnytsia region and Ukrainian countryside, in small rural communities (local green-tourism proprietors, youth activists and artists).
While also cooperating with our local partner NGO in Vinnytsia we started to work with the "Youth in Action" programme in 2013. We hosted clubs and non-formal youth events of EVS volunteers since then and got involved in other activities in frames of such projects. Our youth work potential developed dramatically and we started to organize the youth exchanges like the “12 values expedition” in 2014 aimed at peace-building issues in the turbulent for Ukraine time (with the financial assistance from the Council of Europe).
Our activities also span on music - we organized a city-wide contest of acoustic guitar playing, also we've been organizing role game sessions that were visited by many young people. Our exceptional interest lies in the development of the theater instrument in the work with youth and with the local community. Since 2016 "Movers & Shakers" English speaking theater acts on the basis of the organization giving performances in public places.
Our organization has gathered around a solid, active circle of youth that are interested in different youth initiatives from a number of spheres. Today we total up to 10 active members and scores of local followers and visitors of our events.
From 2014 we started to develop the “YouthInsight” project concept (cooperating with other NGOs) which hosts youth projects aimed at developing of independent and youth media. This project is based inside the "Intercultural Youth Studio" platform that was founded jointly with another local NGO "Nashe Podillia" with an aim of developing intercultural dialogue, media literacy and provide chances for self-expressin of youth.
Another extremely successful project is aimed at the sustainable development of small, rural communities through boosting their incoming tourism attractiveness - the “Image Mapping” project (www.imagemapping.org). It was acknowledged by the Ministry of youth and sports in Ukraine as the best youth initiative from Vinnytska oblast in 2015 and gained financial support from the Embassy of Finland and hence we're developing a whole-country "Image Mapping" network. In 2017 the leg of the projecct happened outside of Ukraine - in Innovator's Valley, (Antaliepte, Lithuania).
Moreover we're doing Youth Exchanges and TCs within the E+ programme. The most recent example is the "Understanding each other" YE that brought youth from 7 countries in Ukraine to speak on the matters concerning peace. In 2016-2017 the organization cooperated with the European Youth Foundation to carry out the "TOSOCO school of a young activists" project taking place in several huge Ukrainian cities.
As well from 2014 the organization is active Sending organization for EVS volunteers and from 2016 is active within the Weltvaerz program of the German government.
In 2016-17 our center became a partner in launching of the "Eco-learning center" in one of the remote communities of the local region where we build plans to develop NFE programmes for youth, experiential education/tourism and other initiatives in partnership with NGO "Nashe Podillia" (co-founder of the center) and the local community.
