High sensitivity and willingness are present in the City of Rijeka aiming to support various programmes and projects that relate to children and young people, although for this there is no legal obligation. In that regard, the City of Rijeka co-finances a number of projects/programmes in elementary schools of the city of Rijeka above the state standard, because systematic investment in pupils and young people represents investment in the future.

The City does not publish public calls for the programme of general public necessities relating to elementary education, the level up to which programmes and projects are financed is determined in accordance with the requests put up by elementary schools and available funds.

For part of programmes and projects (extended stay and whole day education programmes) and the project “Rijeka Swims” the mayor brings in special decisions.
