Improve COSI’s target group knowledge/attitude regarding aspects such as Human rights, sense of solidarity, volunteering, and active citizenship; as well as inclusion, inter-cultural dialogue, and tolerance; and combating: stereotypes and prejudices, racism and xenophobia, discrimination, social inequality, poverty, and exclusion by conducting monthly raise awareness campaigns/humanitarian actions (according to UN calendar).

3. Increase the participation level of Romanian young NEETs in E+, ESC and EYE programs, by providing accessible and effective growth opportunities for at least 100 beneficiaries from the community, to gain useful experience and develop their competences, as well as facilitating their active citizenship attitude.

4. Grow the awareness and participation enthusiasm level of youngsters/students in Bucharest/Ilfov regarding E+, ESC, EYE programs.
