National Coordinator of Bulgaria
My name is Yordanka Gencheva, the territorial coordinator for ETEN Network in Bulgaria.
I graduated the University St. St. Cyril and Methodius of Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria, where I obtained a Bachelor degree of Social Pedagogy and a Master degree of Psychology. I was working for many years as a social worker with disadvantaged people and vulnerable groups. Since 2009 I am a member of the Managing Board of Association FOR YOU in Varna, Bulgaria. Association FOR YOU organises international volunteering, exchanges and internships for young people. I have been actively involved in many local and European projects and activities. At the moment my main responsibilities are coordination of professional internships for Bulgarian and foreign youngsters, preparation and implementation of international mobility projects, social psychological counselling for disadvantaged young people, career counselling and guidance. I joined ETEN Network in August 2017.
