The project connects young people from diverse backgrounds in the Bratislava region. We focus specifically on strengthening the involvement of young people from vulnerable groups such as migrants, Roma, young people with disabilities, LGBTI young people, and young people from socially disadvantaged backgrounds. Young people from vulnerable groups face several barriers to participation (lack of skills, information, self-confidence). In the framework of the project we work directly and intensively with about 15 young people from different groups in the framework of an action group. The action group has been created together with them on the basis of the research on their situation and needs that was carried out in the initial phase of the project. The aim is to strengthen their competences and skills for better participation at local level. Together with them, we will also design a youth strategy for the local government.
Our project partner from Germany, YES Forum, will provide valuable advice and consultation during the project.
