Volunteers don't just do the work-they make it work. (Pettit)
A two day Capacity Building Workshop was organized on 15 - 16 of March 2014. It targeted 22 youth not involved before with YFI, who had not been informed on our activities and youth with few skills and knowledge on non formal education practices. The workshop was focused on basic communication skills, ability to use effectively internet and social media and practical information on local, national and international opportunities for youth. The workshop dedicated time to young and youth work conducted in the region by different actors and needs according to participants. The feedback received will serve to plan activities according to youth needs.
