Research and Educational Centre Mansion Rakičan is a regional public organization from Rakičan, Slovenia and is founded by the Municipality of Murska Sobota and co-founded by the Association for Technical Culture of Slovenia. We work in the field of research, education, tourism and intergenerational cooperation. Our goal is to strengthen our position in relevant strategic areas by consolidating and concentrating our resources. We cooperate with, local and regional organizations, local community, business partners and other international organizations. We are also involved in national, cross-border and international projects, and therefore act as a dynamic and adaptable institution. We are carrying out interdisciplinary work and developing a successful synergy between education, research and tourism.

In the field of education we conduct several formal and informal educational programs, the basis and inspiration of which stem from current, real-world needs and are designed to suit children, young people and adults.

We have an active youth centre “RISKO” that focuses on young people in our region by presenting them with the opportunity to develop their creativity. In the youth centre “RISKO” a programme titled “Centre for Personal Growth and Communication” is being implemented, which was developed in cooperation with the City Municipality of Murska Sobota and the Centre for Social work Murska Sobota and is being funded by the Slovenian Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities. The programme enables active participation of children, young people and their families (free of charge), while offering individual counselling and creative workshops. The programme aims towards improving and furthering of communication skills and social competences of participants, and helps them how to effectively manage their emotions; it also offers support in the form of learning aid activities.

Since its creation in 1999 in Roubaix, ADICE promotes one main objective: the fi­ght against discrimination and the social promotion of job seekers and youngsters with fewer opportunities. To this end, ADICE allows everyone (youngsters, job seekers) to participate to European and International training and mobility actions.

The aim of their association is to help such young people to have enriching experiences which can build and add to their personal and professional profile. The aim is thus to help people define a future project according to the skills that they wish to develop, to promote access to the job market and to encourage their participation in the decision making process. ADICE hopes to make the volunteers actors of their own future. ADICE considers mobility as a way to integrate, mix and promote people, enabling them to acquire social, professional and intercultural competence.

Thus ADICE has erected a mobility support platform which functions around three central concepts:

- Promoting mobility through awareness, informing and training the volunteers nd the local and international workers employed in the youth industry

- Researching and identifying relevant work projects in response to the various plans of the public

- Individual, high quality support particularly for those who, for different reasons, are apprehensive about travelling abroad on their own to undertake a long term project
