Empowering Youth Community is a European Solidarity Corps project realised by AICEM and the Institute of Italian Culture of Tbilisi.
About the organisations[edit | edit source]
Founded and run by volunteers, works with young people to disseminate values and principles based on human rights and education.
Operating in the linguistic and literary field, it has two complementary aims, that are the promotion of Italian culture and language in Georgia, with an inclusive and democratic orientation, and of Georgian culture abroad, specifically in Italy and European countries.
The organisations' mission is to foster/create safe spaces within which young people from all over the world can develop skills, abilities, and competencies to actively participate in their societies and realise their ideas and proposals for change to improve their communities.
