The essence of the program is that it provides free training, pays 70% of the flights, visa costs, internal transport, accommodation and meals during the training. Plus you always have extra days in the country, but at their own expense. In fact, to become a member, you must submit the application form on one of the training programs. Every training dedicated to a specific subject. So, last year we studied tolerance to representatives of other countries in Wales." - Inna, a member of the Youth in Action program.
