Youth Work provided in CID

CID is running the youth support system in the Kumanovo municipality known among youth as MultiКулти Youth Center. The main aim of the youth center is to establish ground for sustainable multiethnic cooperation by fostering intercultural learning and communication among children and young people. In addition, this is made possible by promoting democratic citizenship and fostering active participation of youth within the main decision making processes of the community. Since the establishment of the MultiКулти in 2010, a neutral platform was created where youth from different ethnic backgrounds follow joint activities. CID also runs a set of programmes for new youth workers called the Youth Workers Academy, offering well-planned processes for development of competences needed to work in the youth support systems. Apart of this CID runs a programme of detached youth work in Kumanovo. The youth work offered by CID annually gathers over 2000 beneficiaries.
