Project Summary: Professionalism and Institutionalism in Youth NGOs (Pro & YouNG) project aims to contribute to capacity development of existing youth NGOs and increase of the number of new NGOs by providing tailor made pilot training to youth workers and leaders. Project will upskill the youth workers in financial, institutional, managerial, entrepreneurship in social sector to make them competent to provide trainings, mentorship, guidance to young people and other youth workers/leaders in NGOs.
Hence capacity building for European NGOs will be ensured and supported. Main problems that European NGOs face are limited financial and administrative capacity which prevent them to conduct/implement sustainable activities and/or solutions to social and local problems. Having sufficient knowledge and ability in these areas can contribute to NGOs significantly. However, these educational resources are limited and not provided in schools or universities but private training courses. A specific and tailor made training in this area will ensure the closing the methodology gap.
In line with the problems mentioned above, Professionalism and Institutionalism in Youth NGOs (Pro & YouNG) Project will create a tailor made pilot training programme for youth workers.
