Youth Social Zone - Workshop and Seminars 2018

The "Youth Social Zone" project, by the National Alliance for Work with Volunteers Foundation, is taking place between January 2018 and September 2019.

The project is seeking young people in Plovdiv who have exciting ideas in the field of social entrepreneurship that can be of use to the local community, vulnerable groups and minorities.

A group of pre-selected 15 young people will take part in "Starters", a training programme that will be taking place in the course of a 12-month period. Assisted by experts, each participant will be developing his or her own social project, and will receive partial funding for the financing of their ideas in 2019.
