järjestön kuvaus

Building Bridges Cultural Association was founded in 2008 to promote a spirit and community integration and to foster European culture awareness among the youth. Building Bridges is presented at local level as a tool to assist and support the implementation of non formal education courses and improving knowledge of European labour system practices. We organise courses, visits and meetings, European events for public agencies on policies concerning youth , mobility, sports , local economic development , culture and cooperation with developing countries. We believe that transnational experience could offer young people the opportunity to grow within a European dimension through their personal and professional skills , so that they could become main actors of the European future.
Since its foundation, the association has participated in various advocacy and promotion of European mobility and its members have large mobility experience as trainers. Building Bridges has been actively involved in local and international formal and non formal projects since the very start of its existence.
We work with organisations in the fields of employment, youth information, culture, education and youth, so we have an ample target group. In general, we focus on anyone interested in education issues, specially those looking for an experience abroad and in need of a grant or funding.
This group involves people of all ages and backgrounds but we are more specialised in youth: most of our users are long term unemployed people, with very few opportunities to get funding for developing studying and working activities in Spain or abroad.
All our activities pursue our aim: provide information and counselling to young people according to the following principles:
- Promote intercultural dialogue and favour understanding of foreign cultures.
- Educate young people towards an active European citizenship.
- Support any cultural, educative and/or artistic expression based on the previous values.
- Promote the social construction of Europe
