Associazione Culturale Il Monastero

The Associazione Culturale Il Monastero was born in 2002 with the mission to develop capacities into young people to be masters of their lives and to take parttheir communities, through the principles of active citizenship and participation. Since 2004 Il Monastero started to work also on international mobility by becoming one of the main promoters of the creation of the East West East network, focused on Youth Exchanges. As time went on Il Monastero changed its mission focusing its work more on the empowerment and coaching of youth groups and youth organisations, by facilitating their own international mobility process and empowering their local work throught trainings. Finally in 2009 was among the fuonders of youthNET, a youth network focused on co-operation between Eastern Europe and Caucasus, South East Europe, and European Union countries, in order to use international co-operation to improve local youth policies, by adopting this vision to its local mission, Il Monastero is now a key promoter of the birth of an Italian Network, youthNET Italia.
