We had volunteers in U.S.B. office from American College of Thessalonikion on 2nd November of 2011. 7 students coming from Northern Eastern University in United States of America have been performing an activity about sensitive issues in Balkan area. In this week, they made a colorful map including Balkan countries and they made a video which is uploaded in Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGZ4BXCAsgU&feature=feedu

Melissa, who was one of these American students, said they were trying to raise tolerance towards LGBT issue in the society. Converting strict social climate into open minded ambiance is the main purpose of their activities. In the future, when they finished their map about Balkan countries it will go on the wall to bring out the meaning of our NGO. United Societies of Balkans NGO idea is to integrate, unite and activate Balkan countries.  Focus is on youngsters as far as Thessaloniki and North-Greece is very multicultural area of Greece and young people can gain from this.
