Last week, the Municipality of Novaci celebrated the 23rd anniversary of its existence.
The mayor Ljube Kuzmanovski emphasized the municipality’s commitment to invest in the development of youth, improving the quality of life in the municipality. The Municipality of Novaci will be one of the pilot municipalities in Macedonia that will apply the Youth Banks Model.
The youth banks model will create opportunities for youth groups in accordance with the needs of the municipalities to work on specific projects (cultural, sports and others), to participate as active citizens in the community, to acquire knowledge and develop skills for professional management and leadership through the development of their own facilities, as well as hands-on experience in managing the small grants program, which directly supports young people in rural areas.
The Youth Banks project Macedonia is supported by the USAID’s Civic Engagement project.
