IYA gave me opportunity to deepen my general knowledge, discover world, broaden my network and meet young leaders from many different countries. IYA gave me a right path in life and shaped my future as a responsible global citizen.
Raul Labadze


In order to form as a competitive professional, together with formal education, it is of tremendous importance to gain knowledge and experience from different projects that I acquired through the IYA. Moreover, the IYA gave me a great opportunity to meet young leaders, make new friends and broaden networks.
Tamar Chkhitunidze


New cultures, new knowledge, new friends, these are just a few things out of huge list of benefits that I’ve experienced by participating in youth exchanges organized by IYA. With confidence, I can say that, all the projects were well organized. It always met or even exceeded the expectations of participants. The most important thing is that, thanks to proper exercises and workshops that created good group dynamic, after the years, we are still in touch with project participants.

The organization gave me the opportunity to participate in variety of youth projects concerning non-formal education within the country as well as outside of Georgia . The projects gave my life a new direction of path along with various and progressive experiences full of fun. I made new friends from different countries with whom I always keep in touch. It guaranteed me to be integrated in international scheme of global relationships and gave me an opportunity to have a better understanding of European integration processes beyond our country.
