International youth work

International youth work

Are you interested in international travels and meeting people from other countries? One of our tasks is to help young people and youth workers find their own pathway to internationality, with due consideration to their financial situation. We are part of an international youth work network and aim to promote international youth travel.

We aim to promote:

• tolerance
• acceptance of other people’s differences
• solidarity
• cultural understanding and intercultural dialogue

We also promote internationality in our local community: volunteers and trainees from abroad keep life interesting at the centre even when we are not hosting international events.
