Association Institute Perspectives, is an educational organization dedicated to the implementation of European integration policies in the Republic of Bulgaria by developing, testing and implementing innovative methods and approaches in the field of social entrepreneurship, intercultural and human rights, non-formal education and the protection of cultural, historical and natural heritage.

Institute Perspectives, are member of National Working Group for implementation of  EU Youth Dialogue.

And Public Youth Council at the Ministry of Youth and Sports of the Republic of Bulgaria. Since 2016, we engage more than 20 European students to do their summer internships.  From 1 July 2020, we start with implementation of:






Aim of 5th edition.

To create an atmosphere of effective dialogue that will inspire participants to be transformed from passive observers into a major creative force. To form a foundation of trust that will inspire young people to develop an initiative that leads to employment and full participation in local communities. We want to develop the creative process of social innovation that promotes youth engagement.


Reasons for implementation of 5th Summer Academy:

To prevent the radicalization of young people in small settlements, which at the moment are favored by factors such as: a strong sense of personal and cultural isolation, a sense of injustice or humiliation, reinforced by social marginalization, xenophobia and discrimination. Combined with unstable family ties as a result of labor migration and limited opportunities for education and employment, young people turn to followers of extreme nationalist ideologies and adherents of populist ideas. We want to provide an environment that favors the discovery of the individual talents and potential of participants who are directly at risk of social exclusion.




-To acquire competence for transform conceptual intentions based on day-to-day challenges into relevant social innovations that promote the full social, professional and cultural integration of young people vulnerable to small EU settlements.

-To develop practical skills for cross-sectoral cooperation of youth organizations, educational, public institutions and businesses in local communities.

-To increase the trust of local communities, about the beneficial effect of EU youth and education policies.

-To help the existing business by adapting new forms of employment.



The logical consistency is preparation, implementation and evaluation.


-Preparation phase is divided into four modules: intercultural communication and educational methods; thematic, practical and risk management. They will be done in Svishtov.

-In the implementation phase, our youth workers, will explain to interns our methodologies such as: First step toward EU values, New Horizons and Danube Survivor. And interns will implement 5 trainings which will last 5 days each. The trainings will be done in small towns in Bulgaria.
