Volunteers and interested young people from local community will be involved in work and capacity building and strengthening the organization. On this program, LDA has support of Local Government and ALDA network.

BACKGROUND

Recent researches (there were only few) have shown that young people in Serbia, are inactive, apathetic, apolitical. Although this is commonly known, there is a lack of relevant information about all aspects of life of young people, both in terms of quality and quantity. Because of that, one of the first activities of newly established Youth Centre will in fact be a research about this matter. The data that we will focus on will primarily be related to their interest in voting on elections, involvement in youth initiatives, projects and campaigns, about their activism and fields of their engagement, events that they organize and take part in, sources of informing, active use of internet, what is the field of information relevant for youth in which they recognize the biggest lack, how they spend free time... This information will help as to realize the problems of youth and to mobilize them to work together on problem solving. We want to involve as many people as we can and to solve recognized problems by projects, step by step. We believe that this approach is more efficient and productive than the one in which target group is only the passive beneficiary of the project. In this way, young people can launch their own initiatives, so we hope to have multiplicative process... Insufficient and nontransparent distribution of relevant information for youth causes their low interest for important questions and inactivity, that results in missing significant opportunities for self education and development and unused potentials. Mission of Youth Centre is therefore: enabling and strengthening of free flow of information, with aim to help the youth and to start and develop youth activism, to support youth initiatives and projects. In that way, we would develop long term aim strengthening of local community potentials by getting new, young, active and innovative people for leading development process.
