Youth Empowerment Center

Our story tracks back in 2015, with the launching of the ‘Refugee Crisis’ in Greece. Our active participation in the solidarity movements which arouse in Greece, not only gave us useful experiences, but also created the sparkle inside us, to fight for a different society, which promotes the values of volunteering, solidarity and the principles of communality instead of the unfortunate individualism approach which exists in our societies.
Through our active involvement in series of national and international projects, coming in contact with Youth Work, informal and non formal education methods, while earning key positions in other youth organizations, we realized that the most efficient and productive way to realize our vision, is to create a Youth Organization, which will generate a positive change to the Youth, the Citizens of tomorrow.
Due to these facts, three motivated individuals combined their forces and with the assistance of 20 other active youngsters, created Youth Empowerment Center. A Non Governmental Organization, targeting on implementing quality youth work in local level, while creating space and opportunities for every young person to express and develop themselves according to their needs, with respect on diversity of others and the 17 Goals of Sustainable Development of the United Nations.
