Our small idea that appeared during one youth exchange developed into big network of the youth organizations on the 4 continents...

In 2003, TOGETHER-pan-European network of youth associations was created in Metz, France. Behind this concept stays a few Europeans, convinced that they could contribute to greater international mobility, volunteerism, citizenship and participation at international level.

In 2005, Together was created in the Czech Republic. Together Network started and show us the extraordinary potential of this network. In 2006, Macedonia, Estonia, the United Kingdom and Luxembourg join us. The network was growing in Middle East in Jordan and Palestine. More than 3000 young people are integrated into the activities of Together. 

In 2007, Together was created in Italy and Estonia, in 2008 in Montenegro and right after that in Greece. 

Year 2009 brought a lot of new projects also outside Europe. We developed big project concerned on youth participation involved young people from all member countries of the UE, EVS project in Guatemala that allow 20 young people from 4 European countries to live great intercultural voluntary experience. 

In 2010 our intercontinental activities significantly grew - we started two big projects in Africa and in Latin America that we are working on this year. Thanks to this project we've increased our action area but also our interests and we've entered into new territories.  Also in 2011 first branch outside Europe - in Guatemala, appeared and Network made great step further. 


Every year, the network brings TOGETHER several thousands young people from different cultures through international youth exchanges, voluntary service, seminars, training courses and many activities on local level.
