Asap Europe, an NGO based in Fasano, Italy, has organised an Erasmus+ youth exchange covering the issues of active citizenship and youth participation.

Each month our volunteer, Nikolia Papadopoulou will share her experience in Romania through a small report which we will post it on our blog. I will start my article sharing with you what I learned every week but firstly I would like to thank Mihaela, the project coordinator, who gave me the opportunity to learn all these things, to my mentor Dragoş who supported me, my Romanian language teacher Alin who helped and teach me the language and the history of Romania and to the volunteers of Asirys who helped walk in the EVS path. From the first week I learned from Mihaela a lot about Erasmus + programs, as she informed me about it and answered my questions. I met my mentor Dragos and talked about our cooperation during the program. Mihaela showed me the way to write yout
