Youth emerging needs in the Polog region
"Always active youth, even in challenging times" is a project supported by the British Embassy in Skopje, and implemented by the Institute for Leadership and Public Policy.
The project aims at supporting youth going easier through the pandemic and all its restrictive measures it imposed on the whole population, by keeping them moving forward through different activities, promoting their talents, training on their interests, lectures on developing healthy living habits, etc. all activities were implemented virtually.
On the other hand, through different groups in the lectures and discussions, young people were stressing out lacking a common space where they can hang out and talk about ideas and development. In Tetovo and it's surrounding, there is yet not any space which will serve the youth as a catalyst for their further career development (training, business ideas, start-ups, youth hubs, community place, etc.).
Based on this, in order to prove these and other similar assumptions, it was developed as a research questionnaire. The same one was widely spread among the youth of the city and the rural areas of Tetovo, where 400 + youth took place answering the questionnaire.
Below are presented the results of the research.
