The creativity of young people and their energy to change the future is good, but they will never get there if we don’t listen to them now! They live their future now – not in the future!
Young people can see what is missing in their municipality and what they need, they are able to shape solutions, but they lack guidance, resources, support and a team. THEIR VOICE should be heard, in order to implement their solutions, collect funds, network with each other, build a team, monitor and evaluate, to make a positive change in society, through the growth of their self-confidence, responsibility, change in the perception of self and community!
“Youth Bank” is a mechanism for developing skills, where they will effectively acquire knowledge and skills for successful implementation of initiatives, fundraising, informing and mobilizing the community to shape and solve current local problems.
