Founded in Berlin in 1993, and based in Marseille since 1996 Eurocircle is a European NGO that develops, carries out and promotes transnational projects in the field of youth international mobility, non-formal education, intercultural dialogue, social and professional inclusion, citizenship and diversity. We aim at promoting a better comprehensive understanding of the European Union and its policies, and at encouraging a real sense of European citizenship based on values of tolerance, equality and solidarity. Another more specific objective relates to the fostering of social and professional inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities (NEETs – not in employment, education or training) and people with migration background through intercultural dialogue and non-formal education. We also provide regular trainings in the field of inclusion, diversity, interculturality, fight against discrimination and active citizenship for multiple target groups and specifically for professionals working with NEETs and migrants (teachers, trainers, counsellors, social assistants, etc.). Eurocircle initiates, coordinates and participates in various projects within the framework of European programmes such as Erasmus+, Europe for Citizens, Creative Europe, COSME and Horizon 2020 among others. We develop and collaborate as well in innovative and experimental programs such as the Social European Fund and the Fund for Experimental Youth Projects. Our team is truly multicultural and boasts a wide range of skills and knowledge thanks to the diversity of profiles and academic backgrounds. Eurocircle counts 17 full-time employees, who are supported by several volunteers participating in both Civil Service and European Volunteering programmes. Through its projects activities each year more than 400-450 persons are actively participating to different EU projects. Eurocircle is also part of MetropolisNet, a European network of local development partnerships in metropolitan areas.
