About

Non Formal Library

Find your next activity!!!

Νon Formal Library is an initiative of Hellenic Youth Participation that came to life by the program "Your Non Formal Library" funded by the European Volunteer Service of Erasmus + Key Action 1 for October 2018 - August 2019. Three young people from Europe came to Athens to become part of a large group of people with a common goal: to spread non-formal learning and to promote it to young people, educators, teachers, trainers, facilitators and anyone interested in non-formal education. The library is translated in three languages ​​and our main goal is to translate it to more languages, making it even more accessible to everyone.

Volunteers from Spain, Cyprus, Poland, Italy and France contributed to this effort in designing and implementing the activities as well as in creating the material.

Without them the dream would have stayed a dream, while now we can share it with all of you, with the hope that the library will continue to grow. From autumn we will add activities from our groups of young people from various youth activities. You can also contribute to our library by becoming a member of our community.

Yours sincerely,
The HYP Team!
