The Youth CSO Village
Though still at the conceptualization level together with the Network for Active Citizens (NAC), the “Youth CSO Village” is a one-stop space for youth organizations and youth aspiring to have a career in the Civil Society sector. The space is envisioned to bring together youth, especially university students, and founders of early-stage organizations with aspirations of innovating social solutions through peer- to-peer interaction and piloting heuristic approaches and tools.
For purposes of sustainability, the facility is designed to operate as a social enterprise and offer the following services (a) Co-working office Space for youth-led organizations (b) Workshop space with conference facilities, residential services for both short and long stays for in-country and international students/volunteers (c) consultancy services led by freelance technical experts in different thematic areas. (d) Youth CSO café open to the public (e) International volunteer placement services, (f) Public Internet and Secretarial services.
