About Us

Our Story

Realization was established in 2008 as Association for improvement of modern living skills, mainly targeting youngsters with social obstacles, from orphanages and other fewer opportunities. Slowly, in our work, we continued following our target group and when they turned 18, they soon became unemployed and sometimes NEET. So, the strategic focus of the organisation in 2013 changed towards unemployed and NEET youngsters, as well as unemployed adult citizens and those with lower basic skills. In 2018, in our new strategic planning we have officially added adult education and geographical widening of our local activities in more cities and smaller urban areas all over Croatia, besides capital Zagreb where the association has been established and where we are functioning since the establishment.

According to our mission, with our target groups / beneficiaries Realization aims to work on:

• encouraging personal development;
• strengthening youth and citizens’ initiatives;
• promotion of non-formal education and lifelong learning of all layers of society;
• promotion of European awareness and European citizenship based on interculturality, democracy, knowledge and dialogue.
