A network of 20 youth organizations from Western Balkan and Turkey whose objective is to ensure greater involvement of young people in Albania, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey. Youth Bank Hub Western Balkan and Turkey (YBHWBT) was initialy founded in 2016 by five youth organizations: Partners Albania for Change and Development (Albania), Mladiinfo International (North Macedonia), Prima Asociation (Montenegro), Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation (Serbia) and Community Volunteers (Turkey).
We collect data on youth position, monitor and follow the involvement of youth in all countries. We support youth policy changes to achieve higher participation of young people in political, economic and social life in each country.
Youth banks are local organizations of young people who design and run their own projects by themselves but, also, support other youth local initiatives in fundraising, project managing and promotion of their projects. The particular value of the model is that it brings together local municipalities, business sector and young people.
