2015 Overview

We wish you successful and good year 2016. Thank you for taking part in our projects home and abroad and for your support, your interest in what we do and for being a source of endless inspiration to us.

This year we succeeded in sending 304 young people took part in 77 projects in 26 countries. We also sent our 800th participant to attend a project abroad. We are proud to report that in 2015 we sent groups to take part in projects in Switzerland and Ireland for the first time. We also sent 4 volunteers to 3 European Voluntary Service projects. All these project were supported by the Erasmus+: Youth programme and one was supported by Visegrad Fund.

2015 marked another milestone for EYCB as we succeeded in extending our scope of activity to Africa by sending a volunteer-health worker to the Ghanian OSDA organisation for three-month "We volunteer with FUN" project which we self-funded. 

In cooperation with other Břeclav organisations we organised a community festival "Břeclavané sobě". We introduced the possibilities of fun learning with the Erasmus+: Youth programme to students of technical school and business academy in Břeclav and of grammar schools in Mikulov and Velké Pavlovice. We organised two debates during which you could meet our EVS ex-volunteers (you can read more here and here) and discover how European Voluntary Service works. We also promoted the Erasmus+: Youth programme at festivals "Nestůj... cestuj!", Nestůj... cestuj! vol. 2" and NGO Fair Brno.

Our project coordinator Jana Parollková received an honour when she was awarded the "Person of the Year 2015 in the non-profit non-governmental sector of South Moravian region."

We prepared a new donor's programme for you, so now you can be rewarded with beautiful collapsa-bags, T-shirts and sweatshirts for your donations.

Workshop about Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme at the Grammar School Mikulov

We do our best to spread information about fantastic possibilities of non-formal education offered by projects funded by the Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme to as many young people as possible. This time we visited the Grammar School Mikulov. We think the best way to understand what the Erasmus+ projects look like and what non-formal learning is, is to show the pupils through activities of non-formal learning. Therefore, we also prepared teambuilding activities for students.

Jana Parolková was awarded the 'Person of 2015 of non-profit non-governmental organisation of the South Moravian Region'!

Many thanks to all of you who gave your vote to Jana Parolková. She was supported by 480 from the total number of 2033 voting people and became the 'Person of 2015 of non-profit non-governmental organisation of the South Moravian Region'!

Jana has been volunteering for the European Youth Centre Břeclav as the international projects coordinator since 2010. Since she started she has sent more than 800 youths nearly 350 projects all over Europe, set up a special fund supporting participation of socially and economicaly disadvantaged youth in Erasmus+: Youth in Action projects and organised a training course about helping handicapped.

Jana is also actively involved in all other activities of EYCB, e.g. presentations about Erasmus+:Youth in Action programme on high schools, organising local activities in Břeclav region, organisation's development etc., although she lives in the UK where she worked as a academic support worker for handicapped students of Oxford University.

We congratulate Jana for this fantastic success and we wish her lots of energy and enthusiasm in her further work!
