Youth Bank Hub for Western Balkan and Turkey – WB & T for EmploYouth

Since 2016, PA is part of the network Youth Bank Hub for Western Balkan and Turkey, a network of 20 youth organizations whose objective is to ensure greater involvement of young people in Albania, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey.

The network’s purpose is to foster social, economic, and political inclusion of young women and men through the implementation of policy advocacy initiatives, organized partnership-building with stakeholders, and awareness-raising activities.

In March 2020, the network started implementing WB & T for EmploYouth initiative which aims to create informed and constituency-based solutions for improved youth employment policies in the WB&T. The project contributes to enhancing the capacities of civil society to engage constructively with local and national governments on key societal challenges including on issues relevant to the Western Balkan Strategy. Specifically, it aims to build capacities of grass-root organizations in rural areas who work with youth in NEET and finance innovative ideas to enhance employment opportunities for youth in NEET.
