POYWE partner Udruga Zamisli together with the Institute for Youth Vocational Education, the Ministry of Social Policy and Youth and the City of Zagreb opened a new Youth Club in Zagreb.
The Zagreb youth club is located in the offices of the local board of one of the Zagreb city quarters that offered the space to youth. Under the same roof, there is already a youth job club funded through the youth guarantee mechanisms and the LEDI initiatives of the European Commission.
The funding for the Zagreb youth club is initially for a period of 1 year and it is a space provided to young people in Zagreb for organising their free time offering regular daily activities.
The club was inaugurated on Friday, 5th February by the club project manager, Danijela Bujević and the president of ZAMISLI, Svjetlana Marijon, and from then on its doors are open for young people from Zagreb and otherwise.
