Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. (JKPeV) was founded in 2004 with the aim of providing opportunities for young people and adults to develop and use their soft and professional skills and stimulate their creativity and entrepreneurship through non-formal learning methods. Located in Dresden, Germany, JKPeV is dedicated to promoting the EU citizenship and active participation of its citizens.

We organise international Projects, Events and Trainings for young people and adults in Dresden and abroad, with a focus on assisting the cultural enrichment of the city of Dresden and the Free State of Saxony while also promoting the cultural diversity of the European Union. Inviting foreign educators and participants to our projects kindles an intercultural dialogue in the heart of an already highly artistic hub -Dresden- while on the other hand, including local citizens in our events abroad brings a fresh outlook to familiar problems in the city and a sense of belonging to a greater group – Europe.

Addressing our aim, we focus on breeding international, cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary cooperation in Dresden and the EU, by offering a number of learning activities in Youth Work, Inclusion & Integration, Active participation & Volunteering,  Human Rights, History & Remembrance annually with international participants and educators. Our Public Events offer the possibility for all citizens of Dresden to experience first-hand the intellectual and artistic approaches of individuals from other countries. Thus, facilitating an international dialogue on common issues.

Aside from learning activities, JKPeV also offers the opportunity for young adults to immerse themselves in this cultural and educational dialogue by offering Internship and Volunteering possibilities in our organisation. Working at the hub of such cultural activity allows participants –be they local or foreign- to better understand the possibilities, opportunities and cultural diversity present within the European Union.
