With participation in ESC programs, we want to encourage local environment and youth to actively participate and collaborate in local environment. Through ESC projects we want to present work of our organization and present possibilities to participate in different activities and events, which are organized in our municipality. Through ESC we want to present club Jedro to local youth as safe place to spend quality free time. We want to give new activities to youth through multimedia workshops in primary schools and in club Jedro. At workshops youth will gain informal education and experience, which will benefit them in building their work carrier in the future. We want to present different cultures to local environment that they gain interest to diversity of Europe in participation outside of Slovenia. We want to become support organization and encourage local youth to participate in ESC projects abroad. Main target group is youth, age between 10 and 30 years.
