About the Host Organization
The association “Citizens’ Forum for Social Action and Civic Education”, founded in December 2003, has a social, non-political and non-profit character and has no commercial purpose.The main objective of the organisation consists in promoting youth in Romania, financially supporting and encouraging youth activities.

Since 2008, FCASEC has been actively involved in European Voluntary Service, hosting 62 volunteers from Europe, South America, Africa, Georgia, Azerbaijan. During this time FCASEC facilitated the participation of eight young Romanians in EVS in Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal and Turkey.
Our motivation to implement this project is based on our desire to achieve a cross-border network of youth organisations in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa to enhance the exchange of information and best practices in youth activities, in general, and volunteering activities, in particular. We wish to achieve a permanent transfer of ideas and information about the European Voluntary Service and to increase the active participation of youth in the community.

Expected learning outcomes
The Project aims to put together the youth organizations which work on human rights, equality, tolerance and non discrimination between the units of community. New forms of discrimination have arisen, in association with certain scientific developments and the process of globalization. As a result of these new threats and the outbreak of violence we would like to put an emphasis on this issue and work with the disadvantaged groups; people with disabilities, immigrants, women, children and youngsters.
