YCI Country Information
YCI Romania was launched in 2004 at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel, presenting a brilliant training opportunity to young participants with limited chances to find a job or to continue in further education. Following two successful training programmes with the invaluable assistance of Leaders Romania, World Learning and Feed the Children, as well as a local orphanage and other contributors, the programme was re-launched in 2011. Two more hotels, the Radisson Blu and the Athenee Palace Hilton joined the initiative then.
World Vision Romania provides in-country coordination support to the initiative, which involves organising the recruitment of participants, arranging extra training sessions, and monitoring and tracking participants progress.
