The “Youth one stop agency” project is a strategic project aimed at building a generation of young people active in civil society in the South-Kurzeme region. To do this, it is planned to focus on the three main target groups, which will ensure the widest possible involvement of youth: active young people, young people at social risk on the streets and in rural areas, youth workers and mentors.

During the project, 9 activities in these three blocks are scheduled to be carried out in order to achieve the objective of
the project:
1. Promoting the dialogue between already active young people and local decision-makers, involving these young people in local and national elections and helping them to implement their socially responsible ideas, thereby enabling them to be actively involved in day-to-day civil and public engagement.
2. Providing individual support to young people at social risk in the streets and rural areas in order to help these young people in the long term to be more civilly and socially active and to participate in the common community.
3. Develop a new generation of youth specialists based on civil education, who, together with the already existing specialists, would be able to promote civil and public participation of young people in Liepaja and South-Kurzeme.

As a result of the project, at least 40 young people, 40 future mentors and 40 specialists for working with young people will be trained, at least 100 vulnerable young people (on the streets or living in rural areas) will be strengthened for civic participation, 20 meetings with Liepaja city and South-Kurzeme council members will be held, situation analysis and recommendations for work with vulnerable young people will be created and submitted to local governments, as well as an initiative for access to information will be organized. An informative material "New Voter Handbook" will be created to educate and inform young people about the Saeima (The Parliament of Latvia) elections.
