We encourage young people, especially with fewer opportunities and disabilities to actively participate in public life, take initiative, develop entrepreneurial spirit and creativity. We aim to fight against all forms of discrimination, support cultural diversity, social cohesion, sustainable development and foster youth mobility across Europe. Lidosk is accredited as a sending and hosting organization as well as a coordinating organization. Since 2016 we sent and hosted more than 300 young volunteers abroad and between 2013 and 2021 we offered to more than 700 youngsters the opportunıty to develop themselves through various Eramus+ projects such as training courses and youth exchanges.
