• The Project Includes 12 Countries: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Latvia,

• There will be 2 participants selected from each country.
• Main priorities for the selection are: Reason of applying, motivation, past experience in
related field, learning goals and dissemination goals.
The Idea: This projects outline was created after a research and observation on today’s youth NGOs.
We had many chances to discuss about the problems of civil society works with people who are active
youth workers (managers, members, leaders, volunteers) in several platforms. One of the most common problem that we face is difficulties of achieving intended impacts and acting sustainable. The conclusion was: lack of organizational management & development skills in the youth organizations and NGOs. This problem creates a huge barrier between NGO and it’s stakeholders in terms of efficiency. For that reason we’ve chosen to focus mainly on “effective NGO and organizational identity”, “organizational structure”, “activity planning”, “sustainability” and to the other related skills
that we believe the milestones of organizational management & development.
The Aim: To discuss, strengthen & develop “the model” for a sustainable youth NGO by focusing on topics such as organizational identity, organizational structure, activity planning, source management and sustainability.
