The project in a few words

Community Jar was a project organised in Iz, Croatia, by the Estonian association VitaTiim which aimed to empower young people and help them develop their skills in the field of event organization, in order to participate more actively at the local level. Participants had the opportunity of taking part in workshops and different non-formal education activities that were the basis for their learning process.
At the same time, the youngsters involved shared their experiences and discovered more through their contact with the others, which served as inspiration, and that led to the creation of a national and international network of young people interested in the organisation of events and activities.

VitaTiim was founded in 2008 in Narva and has changed its concept several times. It has the aim to create a supportive and inspiring environment to empower young people to be the best versions of themselves, discover their role in the global world and become flexible in the time of constant changes.  One of its missions is to enrich the diversity of educational approaches by promoting the principles of non-formal education. Also, it involves more youth organisations, youth specialists and especially young people with fewer opportunities and special needs in youth work.
