The project builds a thematic network to support young people in the process of actively engaging in community life by linking different organizations that work with young people with the scientific community. This project gives young people the opportunity to actively engage and set an example for their peers. Various trainings and research activities strengthen the resources of civil society organizations working with young people, contributing to the sustainability and recognition of youth work.
The common goal of this thematic network is to activate young people and professionalize youth work – by building the infrastructure and providing quality resources that will encourage young people to actively participate and act responsibly in the community.
