About this grant

The primary project goal is to increase levels of youth civic participation and initiative for positive social action in the Western Balkans. To this end, YouthBuild USA will strengthen and expand YouthBuild programs in at least three communities with the goal of demonstrating the program’s effectiveness and scaling it up to other parts of the region. Building on the success of the programming in the Western Balkans, with this grant increase the grantee will carry out exploratory work in Bulgaria and Romania in preparation for possible introduction of its programs to these two countries in 2015. The grantee will implement this project through its YouthBuild International division and a network of local nonprofit partners.
