Youth Organization Next Generation is non – profit, NGO founded in February 2010. Main goal of the organization is to give non-formal educational possibilities to the young people, to promote the idea of volunteerism, intercultural sensitivity and to contribute to development of young people full potential.
We are trying to help and give the right resources and basics knowledge to young people and youth workers understanding the concept of intercultural sensitivity and promote the idea of multiculturalism for people with fewer opportunities.
We provide training and financial support for young individuals for better development of the democracy and values of civil society. In our office, 4 people staff working on our local projects and choosing right participants for international projects, based on the project aims and their learning needs and motivation.
Next Generation cooperated with many organisation from South East Europe and EU on projects within Erasmus + and other programmes of EYF, EU or other international foundations with topics: active participation, social inclusion, youth activism, European awareness, youth Leadership trainings.
This year we are working together with “Danish Intercultural Organization”, from Denmark on KA2 project, and established good working processes. Our Project “Are You(th) Sensitive Enough?” was awarded as best practices by National Agency for European Educational Programmes and Mobility, for its innovative elements and methods used, for developing Intercultural Sensitivity for youth.
At local level we are providing trainings to high school and university students on soft skills and we develop Teachers and Youth workers their Intercultural Sensitivity skills. We work constantly with new established youth organizations helping them to build their capacities through monthly online trainings using e-learning, and showing them how they can apply for funding using the opportunities that Erasmus + Programme offer.
