General Information: 

ASOCIAŢIA PENTRU EDUCAŢIE MULTICULTURALĂ (The Association for Multicultural Education) is a nonprofit and nongovernmental organization founded by a group of five young people, with academic backgrounds in History and Political Sciences, for the purpose of launching and developing social and cultural programs for youth in Romania and abroad.
As sources of funding: own contribution, sponsorship and 2% from the annual incomes tax campaign.
Some of the action modalities are youth exchange projects on different topics (dialog between cultures, environment, minorities, racism, cultural heritage).
Our main partner is: Agentia Nationala pentru programe comunitare in domeniul educatiei si formarii profesionale, part of Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports Romania.

Mission and Objectives: 

The Association for Multicultural Education is highly interested in coordinating projects in the field of heritage protection and conservation, in promoting and disseminating the European cultural values among the youth, the initiation and participation in national and international volunteer programs, the development of civic, cultural and educational activities for the disadvantaged people, in educating the young people and the community about the promotion of sustainable development and environmental protection, implementing activities aimed at environment preservation and ecological balance, in carrying out joint projects and cooperate with other similar national and international partners.
Our aim is to provide opportunities, develop and empower young people in general and also young people who are disadvantaged phisically, educationally, economically, socially and culturally through self-help and self-governing collective development activities. We want to provide them the access to information and to stimulate them to become actively involved in projects of national and European interest (environment, social inclusion, multicultural dialogue, equal rights, urban and rural development, antidiscrimination, health) in order to learn and guide others in their turn. After all, they could become an Europeanizing force by changing everything that others have not and for that reason they must be consulted and involved in the decisions affecting the future... the future of Romania and Europe!
The Association for Multicultural Education’ members have acquired a relevant prior experience in youth and civil society issues, participating in a multitude of projects organized by national and international NGOs, where they have acquired the skills and the mechanisms of youth networking.

Main Projects / Activities: 

Our current projects and activities are related to youth exchange and voluntary services.
The founding members experience gained since 1999 - up to day, in organizing and participating in seminars, conferences, summer schools programs and trainings in international organizations like NATO and EU, and national academic institutions is a strong asset for our present and future projects.
