ChangeLog Foundation was established in 2013 in Mykolaiv, Ukraine, as a non-governmental organization by young people interested in implementing and improving methods and tools of non-formal education in existing youth work. The organization aims to mobilize and support youth in taking responsibility for positive changes in our community by developing and implementing socially essential initiatives. We are focused on active citizenship and social entrepreneurship, bringing culture and education to the environments that do not have easy access to them, promoting tolerance, and building bridges between different social groups and communities. The activities include but are not limited to networking and cooperation; “Image theatre,” “Forum-theatre,” and “Live-Library” workshops; promotional actions, such as flash mobs, non-formal meetings, board-game-nights; meetings with artists and writers; organizing local exhibitions. We regularly initiate and organize training to exchange experiences among youth workers and social activists. We collaborate with NGOs and educational institutions at various levels. In cooperation with the Faculty of Social Work of Black-Sea National University (Mykolaiv, Ukraine), we created the Youth Voluntary Training Centre. Here most parts of our initiatives take place. Regional libraries, local cultural clubs, schools, and local authorities also host our activities. To raise the efficiency of our work, we actively participate in international programs, such as Erasmus Plus, European Council Program, and Polish-Ukrainian and Lithuania-Ukrainian Youth Exchanges Programs; in cooperation with our German partners, we have received funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany for providing activists from different regions of Ukraine with the essential tools of organizing campaigns.
