By its own definition, whereby education represents the entirety of spiritual features or qualities, mental and physical, cultural habits that one gains from the systematic influence of school, family or society. In a word education presents different skill benefits to learn and to work. The organization itself is guided by the concept that one learns while he is alive, and believes that each individual regardless of their ethnicity, religion or other affiliation possess the capacity for self-development in the entire process of life. Since the establishment, most projects aimed at young people's personal development, group work, encouraging creativity through the method which is accepted by young people, non-formal education.

According to different contemporary knowledge, we know that there are three types of human education as follows:
Formal education - refers to all educational processes that take place within the formal educational system, structured in a hierarchical manner (from primary school to university), which result in the acquisition of various professions and diplomas.
Non formal education - means organized learning processes that are organized outside the formal education system and which in most cases are dedicated to the personal development of the individual and applicable in practice. Choice remains to the one who learns, and it can be learned through work, action, practice, experience, since it is based on learning through experience. Learning is long and comprehensive. Lasts a lifetime.
Informal education – means educational activities, mainly individual, self-driven by any person who learns or acquires during his life experience (starting from learning at home, through the media, internet, and obtaining experience through contacts with other people).
Taking into account the results that are achieved through non-formal education, where participants are concerned educating with their own initiative and to initiate changes in society. CED continues to promote non-formal education through various activities such as various creative workshops, exchanges, exhibitions, camps and other activities.
We are conscious that these three types of education are important in personal development and identity of a person, so designed projects as a staple always will have the education of young people, based on values such as: respect for people, promotion of welfare, the truth, democracy, justice/fairness and equality.
