About us

Since 2011 we have been connecting youth and educational organisations and institutions from the partner countries in the field of non-formal education. Our projects are aimed at young people and youth workers, educators and have diverse topics: arts, media, history, environmental education, social entrepreneuership, urbanistics and others.

core values


We see potential in each of our participants. It is important for us that all participants see opportunities in our projects to develop their creativity, initiative and participation.

Social equality

We work in international teams on an equal footing: we learn from each other and help each other. We share our experience and knowledge with others.


Our work enables synergies through the networking of participants and resources. We remain open to dialogue and open up new avenues for new partnerships.

Non-formal education

We value non-formal education and are committed to sharing its principals and methods.

asked questions

By this we mean numerous experiences and insights that our participants gather and realise in our projects, analyse and reflect on them. We learn in the process of observing, acting and thinking.

This can be, for example, international long-term meetings (5 – 14 days) where young people from different countries meet and work on a topic (environment, urban development, theatre, music, etc.) as part of a joint group program.

This can be, for example, long-term international meetings (5-10 days) where participants 18+ from different countries meet and work together on the training of certain skills/abilities, on the acquisition of certain knowledge within the framework of a joint group programme based on targeted exercises.

Regardless of the topic and format (youth exchange or training) of the project, you can learn the following with CHANCE International:
– develop initiative and courage;
– solve problems and reflect on the solutions;
– develop creativity;
– sensitise social and emotional participation.

Most of the time, our projects emerge out of the need to solve one or another problem. In cooperation with our partners, we work on the development of solutions. This is how our project ideas are born, which we develop into our projects in cooperation with our partners.
Often, the participants in our projects propose their project ideas, which then give rise to new projects.

Our projects are funded by public funding instruments (Erasmus+, KJP, etc.), private foundations and our own resources.

Our partners are any youth institutions, schools, universities from abroad as well as from Germany. You can find all of them at this page.
