Volunteers from Austria, Denmark, Turkey, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy and the United Kingdom spend at least 3 months and no more than 1 year in the countries of Western Balkans, where they meet youth, aid in resolving local issues and acquire new knowledge that they will implement in their future voluntary engagements.
