The Association of Educational Services “OpenEurope” is a non-profit organisation based in Reus (Catalonia, Spain) that aims to help young people and adults working in youth-related fields to participate in European programmes. All the projects and initiatives of our organisation aim to involve educators, teachers, professors, students and the whole community in the implementation of projects and programmes that seek to create a lifelong learning process. Our programmes are designed to develop participants’ communication, leadership and occupational skills.
In addition, we pay special attention to strengthening the capacity of non-governmental organisations and the volunteers who work to solve social problems. We help to involve all members of the community in our projects and activities, especially in the areas of civic responsibility, immigration, technology serving people or smart cities.
