Project Documentation

The main project aims were to enhance young people’s participation, leadership skills and their engagement in civil society by involving them in local development activities run with and for young people, targeting particularly young people in rural areas or from vulnerable groups. The young volunteers engaged in a variety of local hosting projects, ranging from youth clubs and youth initiated networks to community development and social work projects.
