Our main goal is to promote service-learning in Central and Eastern European educational institutions and NGOs in order to help innovate in education and improve education in the region by building local capacity and develop a critical mass interested in the subject.


Teachers, and students from educational institutions of all levels, NGO leaders, public officers involved or interested in service-learning projects in Central and Eastern Europe.


One of CLAYSS main objectives in working in the region is not only establishing an exchange and horizontal cooperation between Central and Eastern Europe and CLAYSS in Latin-America but also to consolidate a regional service-learning network involving civil society.


The Support Programme has been running for three years, from december 2015and it continues..

About us

Under the motto: "Learning serves, Serving teaches", CLAYSS was born to accompany and serve students, educators, and community organizations that develop or want to implement community educational projects or service-learning.
