Community change is impossible when individuals lack the resources, skills and emotional intelligence needed to be able to empathize, understand and lead others (and themselves).

Kolektivo supports projects that prepare and provide young people with the soft skills, self-reflection and emotional intelligence needed to thrive in the 21st century and beyond.
