The project on capacity building of the youth in Dilijan was held

02 March, 2020

The aim of the project was to create in the Community Center an integrated platform for contemporary and open educational methods in order to stimulate beneficiaries’ aspirations towards knowledge and self-development as well as form an active group of Dilijan residents who are motivated to develop society.

As a result, 12 young people have gained the competence to initiate small positive changes in their local community by implementing their own social initiatives.

The participants engage in participatory decision making at family and community levels by applying tools learned during the program to needs identification, project management, and active citizenship.

Activities of the project included:

  • Workshops on active citizenship, human rights and equality, cultural diversity and tolerance, volunteering;
  • Workshops on project management;
  • Implementation of small projects (sub-granting to local projects);
  • Reflection forum.

The project was implemented by the Dilijan community center  initiative group with the financial support of New Generation Humanitarian NGO from the funds of the Bavarian Youth Council (BJR).
