The cultural association ENJOY SICILY born in 2011 as an informal group of young people who love their territory and willing to revitalize the local community by organizing cultural, sports and artistic activities for the benefit of all concerned. Since 2011 the group of Enjoy Sicily, made up of social educators, teachers, psychologists and fans of European policies, has carried out several projects for the promotion and dissemination of culture and European citizenship among young people.
