“R.O.L.E.S. Project – Roma Opportunities for Leadership, Education and Success”

Year Area / Project Project Period
2013 Educational Achievement Program / Образователни възможности и постижения Oct 2013 - Sep 2015

The project builds on a 3-year project funded by ABF to address the lack of educated professionals, role models, and leaders in the Roma community. The three program components: leadership camps for Roma youth, educational information hub for college applicants and students, and Roma Professional Network (RPN) for aspiring and successful Roma professionals, aim to increase the number of Roma that pursue college education, instill a culture of giving back and provide volunteer opportunities, and develop a network of Roma professionals to support their career goals.
