Abstract: This paper focuses on the vital role of non-formal education in the integration of migrant students. It examines how teachers nowadays, at school or outside school context, have to use a variety of teaching strategies, in order to cope with special social situations. The increasing diversity within the field of formal education has resulted in a great difficulty to distinct what ought to be either included or excluded. In such a multicultural environment young people face problems regarding their identity due to cultural or religious differences. Coexistence of the attributes that a person has in relation to others in a community (national, ethnic, religious, linguistic diversity) is a mission and obligation of the school. The article shows that the process of integration is supported through the implementation of non-formal educational practices within Greece through specially selected practices concerning non-formal education.
