Support youth to become active citizens through non-formal education in Terjola municipality.
It is worth to underline that majority of target group youngsters had a very low accessibility to the non-formal education, because their dwelling places are located far from the municipality administrative center (Terjola).
Thereby, they were less informed about the ongoing youth activities and were note involved in the trainings, youth clubs and etc. organized by the Terjola Youth Center. Also, they had less opportunity to involve in the non-formal education on the national level, because of their less accessibility to the internet and thereby to the information.
