The model of youth banks was presented to the representatives of the Municipality of Bogovinje!
Representatives of Multikultura, as a member of the Youth Banks Network Macedonia - YBNM, organized a meeting with the representatives of the Municipality of Bogovinje, where it was discussed how these youth banks can contribute towards more active youth in local level, as well as to gain life and employment skills. The model of youth banks foresees the establishment of youth funds in municipal level, in which besides the municipality, participates the business community and/or the civil sector.
Youth funds are leaded by the young people and through them are supported small projects prepared by the young people.
The project Youth Banks Network Macedonia is supported by USAID's Civic Engagement Project.
