YiA18 NGO

YIA 18 is trying to extend opportunities of local youth to self-express themselves in physical and intellectual fields, and actively participate
by developing and implementing local youth projects.

We want to contribute to societal changes by providing supplementary educational activities, as voluntarism and non-formal education methodologies.

Our organization is the most active Greek NGO into the field of Erasmus+ D.E.O.R (dissemination & exploitation of Erasmus+ results), since 2013.

Additionally, our organization fosters the competence of self-initiative, through its members. We are conducting informational campaigns into the topics of Erasmus+, entrepreneurship and creativity. The pool of trainers, is also actively engaged to promote digital competences & environmental awareness.

Finally, as an accredited educational sending organization we are supporting several projects abroad, by selecting the most motivated delegates. Most of our members are interested into youth entrepreneurship topic, thus we have adopted a transparent selection procedure of participants, which follows an open call for interested individuals.
