”The present article aims to present a complex analysis on non-formal education and its importance in the process of participatory democracy. Every optimal research starts with a self-motivation statement on why this theme has been chosen. Further on, the article presents a small and comprehensive historical aspect for a better understanding of the concept. Related to the democratization process, the content aims to point out a clear connection between democracy and the non-formal educational approaches, giving concrete examples of methodologies at global level and putting youth as the main actor inside such system. The impact that this structure has, it can be observed and analyzed in the youth employment frame and the best innovative projects that were created worldwide. As concrete examples, a chapter of the article inclines towards the European frame,by analyzing the most important European youth mobility program (European Voluntary Service), a structure that represents a model for youth development throughout non-formal education.
