One of the the objectives proposed of the association when establishment was to promote human rights among young people. Thus one of the first activities of the association has been organizing information campaigns on human rights among young people. In 2013, promotion campaign of human rights led to the organization of a symposium entitled "The young Romanian, a European citizen" and attended high school students. In this symposium, the organizers (association members) found that young people do not have basic knowledge about human rights, do not know what to do when these rights are violated. For how many more young people have access to information on human rights association volunteers searching new ways to promote, both nationally and internationally. Thus was born the project which aims to collect four groups of young people of different nationalities, who during the eight days to acquire the necessary knowledge in the most important human rights and the following exchange activities to achieve a brochure (printed and electronic) containing information about the project conducted and information on human rights and how they can defend their rights.

Therefore, this project is a multilateral youth exchange, under the Erasmus + programme. Project activities will be attended by 24 young people aged between 18 and 25 years, coming from Romania, Latvia, Turkey and Italy. Of these 24 young people, eight of them will come from disadvantaged backgrounds in economic and / or social. Youth will participate in activities that are based on non-formal and informal learning approaches such as discussion, presentation, creativity stimulating games, role playing, knowledge games, intended to make young people acquire various skills communication, teamwork, creativity and knowledge of human rights.
