Association of non-formal education

The Association of Non-Formal Education was formed in January 2013 as an initiative of people whohave been involved in various roles in the European Commission's Programme "Youth in Action" - the programme supporting the non-formal education of young people between 2007 - 2013. We build on our many years of experience in the field, in order to maintain and further develop the know-how that we have gathered during the 7 years of the programme's duration.

More about us

Our vision

We strive for the world in which young people will choose their educational paths according to their needs, interests and approaches that suit them.

Our mission

Non-formal education is our life. We support the quality of youth work by educating youth workers, bringing innovations and European trends in non-formal learning, and by linking non-formal and formal education approaches.

Our Principles

We want your learning with us to be motivational and inspirational. We like to learn with you and from you across Europe. We are particular about quality and meaningfulness. We work at home and also internationally. Differences inspire us.

Non-formal education

We strive to perceive education in a wider context than just from the perspective of education in schools. For us, non-formal education is a tool for changing the view of education and learning. At the same time, it is an effective tool to stimulate self-development. Non-formal learning means to learn voluntarily, deliberately, and from experience.
