About Us - Team

Areté Youth was founded by current and former development workers in 2005. Since inception, we have been joined by an inspired group of Bulgarians and Roma who share our passion for building success through investments in social networks and educational pursuits.

From business entrepreneurs to Roma sector experts with proven experience running large and small initiatives close to the ground, our team connected and commited to our work and mission.  As Americans, Bulgarians, and Roma, we strive to build a diverse team with different perspectives to contribute to the long-term vision of the organization.  Although geographically dispersed between Sofia, New York and Washington, D.C., today's technology has enabled this broad reach to be our strength.
