Center for Educational Initiatives  (Lviv, Ukraine)

logo coi engCenter for Educational Initiatives (CEI) was founded on the 28th of March 1996. The organisation was established on the initiative of teachers and educators from Lviv. Educators wished to establish an organisation which could inaugurate the innovative ideas in the sphere of education, especially in  high schools. During the 28 years of its work CEI  experienced several phases in its development; the initial focus of the organisation was on activities for high school students and teachers, today the Centre unites active citizens, interested in bringing social changes through education and learning.

Today’s mission of the CEI is to educate active citizens. The mission is being achieved by starting various initiatives in the sphere of education, science and culture.

The activities of CEI are focused on:

  • establishing the local partnerships between the state and local authorities, citizens and private sector,
  • supporting the innovations in teaching and learning, particularly education for citizenship in high school and youth work.
  • development of the volunteering, both local and international.

During the last 7 years 16 projects in the sphere of youth participation, innovation in education and volunteering were implemented. These projects were supported by the International Renaissance Foundation, the EU Youth in Action Programme, RITA – Region in Transition, Memoria Programme of Stefan Batory Foundation, MAF of Norway, MAF of Poland and the Council of Europe for an overall budget of about 600 000 EUR.  Up to 12 000,00 people benefited from the activities, mainly young people, teachers, children and NGO leaders.
