What do we do?

The organization is engaged in implementing educational youth projects at local and international level since its foundation. At local level we organize seminars, workshops, and other educative courses for promoting human rights and other democratic European values. We also involve young people with fewer opportunities in our activities. We provide traineeship possibilities for university students and volunteers.


At international level, we have wide experience with the implementation of Youth in Action and Erasmus+ projects. Besides, we have been hosting international trainees from European and Mediterranean countries.


Thanks to our experience we find it important to improve the skills of facilitators of young people’s learning process – let it be a shorter period (workshops, youth exchanges, trainings) or a longer one (EVS, Erasmus placement, ENPI CBC Med project mobility – work placement of youth workers and unemployed youth etc.). We are promoters of the Youthpass and the validation of non-formal learning outcomes, thus we focus a lot on the key competences when it comes to facilitate our target groups’ learning.

HRYO offers a big variety of work areas and positions. Furthermore, we can give a logistic support for the interns in order to help them find a good accommodation.
