Austria- CUBIC

CUBIC is a non-profit organisation established in 2005 to support young people with fewer opportunities to find their passion, develop self-awareness and expand their horizons; this is achieved through delivering innovative international projects that are culturally immersive, educational and unique. In its activities CUBIC aims at encouraging intercultural exchange and learning processes. CUBIC tries to improve especially the opportunities of young people of getting involved in social and labour life, giving special attention to the inclusion of disadvantaged youth. Our overall aim is to support young people with fewer opportunities – to offer them a secure frame and environment of learning, including a clear timetable and daily structure, to give them the chance to prove themselves in new situations and give them impulses to develop their self-perception and self-esteem, to help them orientate in their current life situations, and to encourage them to take a stake in their life, and to help them find ideas and motivation for further action.
