The aim of the project is to empower the capacity of our organization “Youth society of Koknese” by creating a new public image and promoting its recognition in society, as well as by starting entrepreneurship to ensure the long-term sustainability of the organization.

We have set out four main project activities to promote the long-term sustainability and to achieve the goals of youth work of our organization:
1. Development of the entrepreneurship and capacity-building;
2. Summer school for youth workers as a pilot tryout;
3. Designing the organizations website and its maintenance;
4. Creating and promoting the public image of the organization in society.

We will achieve a significant step towards financial independence and recognition beyond local district, as a result of the project. We will create at least five non-formal education programms as paid offers, design a new logo, visual publicity materials and more attractive and easily maintained website; organize one summer school for youth workers as pilot event to try it out as future business offer; recruit a publicity coordinator for the management of the organization’s information channels and communication with the public; improve the management capacity of the organization by implementing coaching training and exchange of experience with other similar organizations.

With the help of this project we will promote the recognition of the organization in the wider society, provide an offer of non-formal education as a basis for the development of our entrepreneurship in the future, improve communication with the media and society, which in general will raise the quality of our organization “Youth society of Koknese” and will be a serious kick-off in our path to the peak of development - to new challenges in promoting youth civil engagement and involvement in social improvement activities.
