The young people, who will participate and implement voluntarily activities, are the disadvantaged young people who have not that much chance to access to this kind of opportunities. We want to contribute the social and personal development of these young people and improve them during the process.

Our project title describes our project philosophy. This is exactly our project priorities, exchanging the ideas, intercultural learning, supporting the self-learning process and youth participation. Moving in another country means learning and adjust the new knowledge to develop as a person and help the social development in your community. Through non formal activities our project will redefine the habits and the needs of youth in different countries underline the need to be active citizen and respect other cultures. The volunteers will be the example for the whole community as they will create events and implement various activities.
Moreover the two youngsters per period in different organisations and countries, so totaly 19 young people from Turkey will work on projects which aim to create a better life for youngsters, espeacially for those with fewer chances. This systematic work along with all the other activities of TAV and our partners are able to create a system of unofficial rules that will be adopted by the citizens and change the communites to a better way.
Furthermore through inter-cultural activities the volunteers will present their culture, and through daily life they will be integrated in the Europe. “Change is a Chance” has also another meaning as promotes the youth mobility as a tool for the personal development and social change.
