The Association of Social Responsibility for Children and Youth - SKEP is a nonprofit organization established in 2008, in Athens. Our mission is to:

1) Deconstruct Stereotypes of prejudice, bias, indifference and social exclusion

2) Reshape Attitudes towards disability by Educating students through experiential learning, motivational campaigns in schools and joint art activities.

3) Engage mainstream students by developing perceptions of social / collective responsibility

By giving voice to the opinion and feelings of challenged youth SKEP acts as a platform for communication and integration, linking challenged youth (physical, sensory, intellectual, social and mental disabilities from special education schools and institutions) together with students from both mainstream schools and universities. SKEP Connects People through:

- Educational Interactive Campaigns

- National & International Networking to Strengthen a Society of Active Citizens

SKEP's Educational Interactive Campaign "Finger Prints" offers students from special schools along with those from mainstream schools an alternative unique experience, prompting them to consider new ways of understanding and engaging the world, creating connections and dialogues between them. Our main objective remains the interactive cooperation between students and youth with disabilities through the creation of artwork.
