THE YOUTH is a space to inform and empower young people in Bulgaria and across Europe.

An open platform to make visible good practices in youth politics, culture & creativity and ecology fields. Our aim is to inspire change through volunteering.

Started in 2017, THE YOUTH is a media project created by The (Y) Volunteers, the EVS team of YDCMA organization (Youth Development Centre for Mutual Aid) based in Kazanlak, Bulgaria.

We believe in:

  • YOUTH INCLUSION & PARTICIPATION
  • VOLUNTEERISM
  • INTERNATIONAL MOBILITY
  • MULTICULTURAL EXCHANGE
  • CULTURE & CREATIVITY
  • ECO-AWARENESS & SUSTAINABILITY

to share ideas and good practices

to think from new angles and widen horizons

to give voice to the youth and engage them in responsible ways

to help them to develop their qualities and skills

to build our civil society values and make the world a better place

The voluntary partnership will be implemented in 3 periods: 01/01/2019 -30/06/2020; 07/01/2019 -31/12/2020; 07/01/2020 -31/12/2021

For years, our organization has used, as a support tool in its activities, to promote and disseminate the results of our projects, the youth “TheVolunteers” Newsletter, which has grown into the Youth Media “TheVolunteers”, through the creation of the Theyouth.info website.

Each week, young people have the opportunity to support and develop youth media, as an active contributor to the dissemination and impact activities of the project. This is another sustainable activity that we cover under this project, launched in 2011.

Following our philosophy, we have never relied on “one-day” projects. From 2011 till now we have three sustainable lines of work: organizing an Eco festival, a wall of volunteering, and a youth newsletter that is evolving as an online media.
