We prioritize political education and capacity building to empower young people with the knowledge and skills needed to actively participate in the democratic process. Through workshops, training, and resources, we aim to foster a deeper understanding of civic engagement and policy making.

Our dedication towards political education and capacity building programs equips youth with the tools to become informed and engaged citizens. By understanding the political landscape, young individuals can effectively advocate for their needs and aspirations, influence decision-making, and work towards a more inclusive and just society.

Connecting Youth

CY stands for Connecting Youth . CY is a grassroots regional youth platform implemented by Cooperation and Development Institute (CDI), together with the umbrella youth organizations of the six Western Balkans Countries – National Youth Congress of Albania, National Youth Council of North Macedonia, National Youth Council of Serbia, High School Students Union of Montenegro, Central Youth Action Council of Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina Association for United Nations -, and with the support of Hanns Seidel Foundation.

HSS Cooperation

The CSU-affiliated Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSS) is a German-established, tax-funded political research foundation. The work and mission of the foundation is described with the motto “In the service of democracy, peace and development”. This motto applies both to domestic engagement and to working with international partners.

HSS believes that the meaning of democracy should be renewed with every generation, especially young people should become aware of political developments. Only then will they be able to get motivated, engage and take responsibility. To put it in a narrower denominator: Democracy needs political education.

With this reasoning, a fruitful cooperation was born with the National Youth Congress during 2018, where the harmonizing of the ideals of creating an Albania where the above-mentioned are easily distinguishable in our society, requires a joint work between parties with access to different resources and groups. The specifics of this cooperation are in the areas of civil education and political education with the wide community access of youth organizations, informal groups, schools in secondary education and universities.

National Youth Congress (NYC) is a youth umbrella organization – a union of youth organizations, informal groups, youth forums of political parties.
