Our youth are our future.  Working with youth to gain their perspectives and to help them understand the world better is one of our priorities and obligations.  In our time of difficulty it is often the youth that pay the price of our mistakes and suffer the effects of our bad judgment.

Our work with youth includes:

Youth Initiatives:  Allowing the youth of today to build projects around their needs and interest and supporting them in every way possible.

Youth Exchanges:  Allowing the youth of the world to get together for common goals and exchange cultures and learn from each other.

Youth Democracy and Youth Policy:  Giving the youth a better understanding of their place in a democratic world and letting them know that individually they can make a difference.  Discussing youth policy with youth and policy makers to shape their future together.

Training and Education: Offering training and educational courses to youth and youth workers and leaders.

Anti-drug campaigns:  Working with youth to combat drug abuse and to educate them about the dangers associated with drug abuse.

Youth Unemployment:  A major issue during these times and a main priority for the current and future years.  Finding was to get youth unemployment reduced. 

Volunteerism:  A term we often take for granted.  Building our future requires a lot of volunteering and during these difficult times most people generally think of the self rather than the society but when we neglect our society we neglect ourselves.  We offer youth opportunities to volunteer on local and international levels so that they can gain more experience and implement this experience in their working environment and their communities.

Testimonials

"Where do I belong?" Youth Exchange - Romania was one of the most beautiful and succesful experiences I have had so far. I feel truly grateful for each and every person, story and moment we shared. The knowledge gained, the learning outcomes and engagement of participants was inspiring. The quality of each national team stood out throughout the entire project as the group dynamic grew with each day. WDIB was yet another amazing chance to work close to OTI representatives, to absorb their know-how and to gain new skills, as the involvment of each participant was taken care of, offering a feeling of empowerment and involvement. On a logistical level, the organising was spot on and each impediment was solved in a natural way, as part of the learning process. The chemistry we, as facilitators, felt was impressive and it gave us even more reasons to feel like it is worth it to keep going and to make the change we wish to make. After participating in many Eramus + projects, I can truly say this was one of the very best. This gives me hope and excitement for what is yet to come. Where do I belong? Where people as beautiful as those on this project are :) Thank you, OTI!!!
