Why YouthBank Model?

The youth banks model understand formation of local funds in which financial means from the municipalities, as well as from the civil and business sector will be channeled, with an aim to finance community actions and initiatives by young people.  Using this model, youth not only will act as project applicants and implement local community initiatives, but also the young people will be the ones deciding what kind of small projects should receive financial support and be implemented, estimating what the local community needs are.
Thus, youth will not only gain entrepreneurship and employability skills (problem identification, solution-oriented approach, partnerships-building, project writing, project management, communication with media), but also they benefit from numerous life skills (team work, confidence-building, sense of initiative, innovativeness, taking care of the local community, solidarity).
