Youth empowerment in Odessa region

Youth empowerment is always a great issue for Ukraine even thought youth has a great potential for development of our country. 

On 7th of April a panel discussion about youth empowerment was held in Impact Hub Odessa in a strong partnership with Youth Matters which is a unity of youth-led organisations. Volunteers, students, university professors, social activists and representatives of the local authorities had a chance to discuss whether there are enough possibilities for young leaders to gain skills to impact their lives and participate in community activities.
