Joint is an association of social promotion based in Milan, via Giovanola 25 / C which organizes different types of activities for young people, involving them as much as possible ever since the beggining of the project and always trying to involve those who have never had the opportunity to participate in similar projects before.
Our main activities are:
- training for students that are school representatives;
- within the Youth in Action programme: youth exchanges, training, coordination, hosting and sending volunteers of the European Voluntary Service;
- events for the local community on different themes.
Our goal is to help young people develop their transversal competences, using non-formal education tools. Our aim is to educate young people to a peaceful coexistence with people from different cultures, countries and social conditions giving them an opportunity to interact with others in an international environment that stimulates the development of awareness about the complexity of our society. Young people find themselves in an environment perfect for socialization with other people from different countries and learning about different cultures and traditions.
In an ever-growing Europe it is important for us to use such opportunities to promote European identity among young people and stimulate them to active and responsible citizenship.
In the last three years we have organized and attended many international youth exchanges, training courses offered by the Youth in Action programme of the European Commission in many countries across Europe, and we have improved the skills of our staff which is now very well prepared in organizing events hosted in Italy, as well as preparing groups of youngsters for their stay abroad.
