The partners have met one or more of the following conditions:
a. To be active in the field of Youth
b. To have diversified experience in involving Youth and especially those with less possibilities in non-formal and informal learning
c. To have a different area of specialization in the various learning environments which consist the program and deal with Youth.
d. To come from different European countries, with proven practical experience on Sociocultural actions
e. To face a variety of learning problems due to their geographical and social distribution
