The Youth Forum Association
Young People Get Involved in Local Community Life
The Youth Forum Association (Forumul Tinerilor) supports the regional development of communities by empowering youth participation in public decision-making processes. Together with young people, they organize events and activities where high school students can learn and develop specific abilities for their future careers.
The Youth Forum Association was founded by a high school students’ group that wanted to promote and exercise their rights as young citizens and assume a more active role in society.
Now they coordinate two projects for high school students who are willing to get involved in their community in order to bring about a positive change in their local society. The projects include seminars with eco-civic subjects, drawing, photography, short films, and advertising competitions.
The young and enthusiastic team relies on the latest technology to communicate and achieve its goals. With the help of the TechSoup donation program, the organization was able to access the latest Bitdefender security software.
”With the help of Bitdefender we no longer lose important time and documents. Many times before I have lost all the data from a computer, and that is why it is important to be protected against viruses,” says Lidia Stoichici, president of the association.
The donated software is also helping the organization
in a project that aims to empower 800 women to develop entrepreneurship skills.
