description of organisation

The Center for European Initiatives (CEI) is a registered Sumy City NGO. Its mission is to promote European standards of living, democratic values, and civic participation with the citizens of Ukraine.
Our target group is citizens of Ukraine interested in a better future. This includes: youth, educational establishments (both educators and administrators), NGO’s, government officials, regular office workers, journalists, businessmen, etc. Anyone who is interested in increasing their knowledge of European life and standards, and Euro integration; those interested in leadership, tolerance, respect for human rights, and the awareness of democratic values.
CEI’s programmes include conducting youth camps and trainings and working with youth on community volunteer programmes. CEI has solid experience in international projects that include youth exchanges, trainings, conferences, study visits, and the exchange of volunteers.
CEI has established a network of Euroclubs throughout the region. Euroclubs are formal or non-formal groups of active youth who believe in and promote European values and active citizenship. Euroclubs are an excellent place for youth to be active, to get involved in the community and their country, and to build international relationships. There are currently over 70 Euroclubs in Sumy region, and we are continually working to widen the circle of young people involved in youth Euroclub activities. CEI is also an active and contributing member of the All-Ukrainian Network of Youth Euroclubs.
