Immagine About us
Giosef Association - Youth Without Borders promotes active European citizenship, international collaboration and youth mobility. It is committed in youth inclusion and participation in all forms and at all levels. It aims to create new spaces for youth participation in public life, because the young people themselves are able to provide answers to the needs of new generations. It supports the construction of a Europe of solidarity and hospitality, founded on the ideals of democracy, peace, tolerance and acceptance of diversity. It promotes paths of non-formal education and job training in an intercultural perspective.
We believe that the formation and education is a right to everyone which help young to acquire skills for their own personal, professional and language development and training.
It is through a non formal education and internship that we prepare them against cultural, social and economics obstacles.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”
(Nelson Mandela – politician).

These goals are pursued through the implementation of young people intercultural exchange, seminars, training courses, internship, engaged citizenship events, sister cites, conferences, research and publications, solidarity initiatives, cooperation and development projects.

 “The only rule of travel is: don't come back the way you went. Come back changed.”

Thanks to this wide range of activities over the past years, Giovani Senza Frontiere Italy is rooted in national and European level; strengthen its systematic networking activity. Today, it is present in different regions, both in the north and south of Italy, and has partnerships in all European Union countries as well as other.

Giosef Italy realizes projects involving young people from all over Italy. Moreover, thanks to local offices, it manages to have a strong impact even in smaller cities. Our local connections operate independently or in close cooperation with each other and also cooperate with public authorities such as municipalites and provincial agencies.
