Life is moving in again at the Berchum Youth Training Center!


We have rented the country house from the current owner and will renovate it in the next few months to be able to use it again as a meeting point. But we need the support of those who have long benefited from the experience in the eSw. The renovation of the Landheim will cost about 32,000 €.


To support us with renovation on a territory of Berchum send us a privite message with your contacts (email/phone number/social media account) in Instagram or Facebook and we'll discuss your occupation and how you may help us.

who are we?

We are a non-profit organisation with an office in Hagen and an extensive network throughout Germany and beyond. We can call ourselves a real youth community whose goal is to bring together young people from Eastern and Western Europe, familiarize them with the principles of democracy and human rights, and create a safe space for their informal communication. Thanks to the projects under the Erasmus+ youth program, we can actively create such international exchanges.


Due to the current situation, we had to cancel and postpone many of our projects, but we are implementing some of them online and also developing local activities.


Every year we host volunteers from various Eastern and Western European countries under the European Solidarity Corps program. In recent years we have hosted volunteers from Estonia, Russia, Belarus and Georgia. In cooperation with the Elaphi kindergarten in Hagen, we have the opportunity to invite volunteers from Greece.


In addition, we act as a sending organisation for many young volunteers from Germany who get the chance to work with our friendly NGOs in Spain, Russia, Estonia and Georgia every year.


For the development of our projects we invite interns and trainees from Germany and abroad (for example, Belgium).


East-West-East wants to contribute to building peace between nations and people. Therefore we cooperate with the association "Hagener Friedenszeichen". Together we organise different peaceful rallies and demonstrations and speak out against discrimination, human rights violations and militarization.


If you join our organisation, you can show your active citizenship and get support. You have the opportunity to participate in international youth projects on social topics for free. You can also have fun with new friends and practice your language skills.
