With Training we intend to bring together organizations who are working for young people with fewer opportunities and our target group is young people who are volunteering in activities of these organizations and who themselves are coming from disadvantaged rural and border areas without access to wide range of educational programs, work and(or) travel opportunities. The main aim of the project is to empower these people for the meaningful participation in the civic life of their communities and to encourage them to dream and to fulfil their dreams: to give them ideas and tools how they might create more opportunities for self-realization and professional and personal development of their own and people around them with support of different European level programs. The training program is designed to give the participants knowledge, skills and resources that will help them to become good leaders in the future and to be more active participants in of the social, political and cultural life of their communities: local, national and European.
We are looking for 30 participants from 10-15 different organizations which are based in EU YIA Program Countries ( EU Member Countries, Norway, Liechtenstein, Norway) and SEE & EECA & EURO-MED countries and organizations who are working on youth development and who have experience on this field. We will accept 1-2-3 participants from each organization depends on their requests, motivations and experiences.

We don’t have an airport in city but it is possible to reach Osmaniye via Adana, Hatay & Gaziantep Airports which are busy and working airports of region.
