Coordinator - Asociatia Se Poate

Asociatia « Se Poate » from Romania,

 translated in English as "It's possible", is a Romanian NGO made by young people for young people. The organization gathers volunteers and members from different parts of the country, mainly from Bucharest. Asociatia Se Poate’s first and main aim is to help the development and the promotion of intercultural exchanges among the young category of citizens, by helping them get in touch with people from all countries, particularly from the European Union. 

The main mission of the association is to open up new paths and possibilities for young people, always making a strong effort to contribute to the construction and development of the European identity and active citizenship.

 

Culture, international learning, self-development represents the most significant and strategically important ways through which the young people can develop and thus form themselves, both physically, as well as mentally. This is why the organization has dedicated time and support promoting international cooperation and, therefore, supporting intercultural changes between people of young ages, managing to create relationships, perhaps even bonds, between countries, communities and between people of these countries.

The topics of the projects we are organizing are on different topics such as employability, communication skills, active citizenship, youth support, creativity, sustainability, environment protection, sport, outdoor activities and cultural learning and exchange. 

Our activities and projects are always focused on areas related to European values and interests such as human rights, social inclusion, peacebuilding, conflict resolutions, social minorities, youth employability, entrepreneurship, etc.
