TdG is a voluntary association composed mostly of young people living in Naples and nearby Torre del Greco. The association is made up of young people who have worked together since 2012, they have gained experience in long-term mobility as Erasmus + (EVS, Training courses, Youth exchanges) and Leonardo. TdG often takes part in training sessions on European programs for young people (such as those relating to the Erasmus +) or opportunities for youth organized by the NA or business incubators Invitalia. Association brings together people with different experiences and background (artists, students in various disciplines, workers and unemployed). Even members of TdG are often of different professional background, they are united by shared values (freedom, democracy, equality, land development, cultural integration, language learning and ICT tools as a means of growth and political participation international level, etc.). We believe that active engagement of young people at local level is key to efforts undertaken to improve their condition.
We deliver services through the following lines of action:

3.Youth Mobility and Exchange: We give young people an opportunity to serve in different community projects that enable them to utilize their skills, gain experience and contribute towards sustainable community development initiatives thus being able to gain the confidence and recognition of policy makes as active contributor to community development.
4.Non-formal education: The learning activities within this initiative are created to attend to the young people’s needs, aspirations and interests, on a voluntary basis and learner-centred. We base on creating healthy environments of trust and sharing experiences. It also provides added value for young people, for the economy and society in terms of capacity-building of organizations, systems and institutions. This education takes place in a diverse range of environments and address specific target groups and subjects, facilitating the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities.
