European Union Initiative
YouthBank Exchange Visit
Armenia | Eurasia Partnership Foundation
Օn November 19-21, 2016 Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF) in collaboration with TOG (Community Volunteers Foundation, Turkey) will organise the first exchange visit of Turkey-based youth workers and volunteers to Armenia implemented within EPF’s ATNP2 YouthBank activity.

YouthBank is a unique way of involving young people in grant-making within their local community.  It is an international initiative, the idea of which is forming decision-making committees run by young people, that later would distribute funding to projects designed and run by young people. The projects address issues and concerns relevant to them and their community.

The group of young community leaders from different regions of Armenia (Armavir, Lori, Tavush, Yeghegnadzor) and Turkey (Batman, Istanbul, Izmir, Samsun, Sanliurfa) will spend 3 days together implementing small-scale confidence-building projects aimed at sustaining the dialogue and engaging in community development.


During the YouthBank event in Armenia, the participants will travel together across the regions of Armenia and visit local branches of YouthBank as well as local organisations dealing with Human Rights and social issues.
