About

YouNet is a dynamic organisation opened to all forms of collaboration and that support the non profit sector and, in general, the macro-system of pro-social organisations.
YouNet cooperates with individuals, informal groups, foundations, and whichever public or private body aims to achieve a more equal, just and supportive society. Our focus is very much on empowering individuals and organisations to achieve their dreams.
We achieve this designing, funding, organising and realising small and big projects partially funded by international and local institutions and private bodies.

Aims:
– To contribute at and to boost the development of the non profit and for social sector;
– to foster training, cooperation and partnership between non profit organisations and social workers;
– to promote and to support volunteering at a local, national, European and international level;
– to promote youth learning, participation and mobility with particular regards – to youngsters with fewer opportunities;
– to foster active citizenship, social and democratic engagement;
– to support social inclusion and cohesion;
– to promote intercultural dialogue and exchange and to foster the access at an European society whilst fighting racism and xenophobia;
– to encourage local sustainable development in the north and south of the world;
– to raise awareness and to promote mobilisation around global challenges.

The regional headquarters in Puglia is for importance comparable to that of Bologna and already has two approved projects:
1) “Truly trullo” 24th august – 4th September 2012 – Cisternino
2) “Youth in Radio” 14-24th November 2012 – Cisternino

3) “Mind the GAPs – Gender,Art,Public Space” 4th-14th August 2013 – Corigliano d’Otranto

This region, with its many peculiarity and challenges, proves a particularly fertile ground for an association active in the field of youth, non-profit, social inclusion and the environment in a context in which the ‘offer in these areas is very low. The young activists design, support, promote the activities in a local, regional and international level: in particular, they are active in the field of volunteering, “immigration” and informal and non-formal education. The proposed projects find therefore their solid foundation in these skills and experiences, developing a program of activities of quality and quantity.
