History

Stay Active Get Involved

Hellenic Youth Participation is a pioneering education and empowerment organization that connects citizens locally, nationally and internationally.

We envision a society in which each individual cares and acts.

The main axes of our project are:

  • Providing high quality services for personal development and social optimization.
  • Activating young people on European issues and encouraging them to participate in social and political life.
  • Awareness of issues that are important to our communities, such as the environment, the arts, human rights, personal and professional development, employability skills, democracy, respect for diversity and a conscious life.
  • Intercultural and interpersonal dialogue.
  • Providing opportunities, perhaps, without discrimination.
  • The anthropocentric, diverse and needs-based actions of the participants, which in many cases are led by the participants themselves and are based on teamwork.
  • Respect for oneself and the other regardless of origin, education, financial, family or health status, sexual orientation, identity or gender or political or religious beliefs.

I’m Eleni Kardamitsi and I am one of the founding members of HYP, because I have the need to combine learning with unique experiences. Working at HYP never disappoints me. Every day a new program, a new idea, a new collaboration, a new destination charge me and inspire me to give my best. I am a program and training coordinator.

Ivi Toumasi

The search for my identity and interests soon intersected with the non-formal learning that has defined much of my career to date. I am a graduate of the School of Business Administration and Management and the Education and Training Sciences program of the Athens University of Economics and Business. I consider experiential learning and acquaintance with different cultures valuable tools of personal development for each person and this motivates me daily in the organization. I work at HYP as a coordinator of volunteer, training and European programs.
