TIRANA – Head of the RYCO Local Branch Office in Albania Mr Kreshnik Loka took part in the presentation of the preliminary findings of the study “Understanding Youth Trends – Time for a New Narrative” organized by the National Youth Congress of Albania with the support of the Embassy of Switzerland in Albania. What are the main reasons why young people emigrate and how do they evaluate youth policies and institutions’ work regarding youth were some of the questions asked to the respondents of the study.
“RYCO is fully engaged in creating equal opportunities for young people and maximizing their inclusion in projects supported by our organization,” Mr Loka pointed out and added that in each of our open calls for project proposals, RYCO is always asking what is the applicants’ structured strategy for inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities and marginalized groups in their project proposals.
“RYCO is one of a few institutions that support school projects in the region, which is of high importance since the secondary schools represent main sources of education for young people,” Head of the RYCO Local Branch Office in Albania concluded.
“Understanding Youth Trends – Time for a New Narrative” is an analytical report on the dynamics that Albanian youth are experiencing accompanied by recommendations for revitalizing youth potential within Albania. The study will be available for the public in upcoming weeks.
