Project: First steps towards Youth Centered Leskovac

First steps towards Youth Centered Leskovac

Name of the organisation: Association of citizens Team 42

Country : Serbia

Timeframe of the project: September 2020 – January 2021

 

Short description of the project:

The project idea is to implement two researches:
- research that will map the youth programs and resources (free and paid) available to young people in Leskovac. Something like this was never before implemented.
- research the needs of young people in the local community (using survey and focus groups).
The project team will analyse and cross-match the results of both researches, and organize a round table with decision makers from local municipality, local youth office, representatives of institutions and NGOs, and most importantly, young people willing to take active part in youth programs, as a first step towards structured dialogue between young people and decision makers in Leskovac.
As the local action plan for youth in the city of Leskovac is adopted for the period 2016-2020 and the new one is to be proposed and adopted, this research and youth participation in the process will be an important first step in creating a more youth-centered Leskovac. With comparative research on the needs of young people and programs offered, we will map the gap between them and provide a starting point for new legislation (Local action plan on youth for the period 2021-2025) which will be based on actual needs of young people. Also, we want to emphasize the active involvement of young people in all parts of the process, and need for this kind of research to be done periodically.
