We are Active Youth – a Lithuanian for-purpose organization aiming to create social, cultural, and educational impact for groups and communities in need through national and international projects, events, youth mobilities, and training.
Thanks to our constant international work, we have built a strong network of worldwide stakeholders, which we cherish with pride. We believe that networking allows organisations to further develop their skills, meet experts, discover alternative career paths and, therefore, improve their work. Specifically, we value the cooperation and exchange of information between NGOs, institutions, and businesses that work in the youth sector and strive for the social inclusion of vulnerable groups (especially seniors, ex-convicts, and migrants) and we are always open to partnerships to expand our network.
But how do we foster, maintain and get the most out of collaboration? 💭
Well, through three main tools:
created for NGOs, policymakers, businesses, and other stakeholders.
How will it benefit you? You will get:
- Insights into our newest research on sustainability, social inclusion, and digital literacy;
- Updates about the latest developments in important social issues and policy-making;
- Access to a grand network of stakeholders working in your sector;
- Links to our newest products available.
So, what’s next?
In our next newsletter, you will find how to improve your online meetings, how to make project writing a more creative and entertaining process, learn how ex-convicts in Lithuania are preparing themselves for the labour market, and get updates about upcoming grant application deadlines.
