“Youth Worker In Debate” officially started with the first transnational meeting in Thessaloniki, Greece from 16-17 of July 2019.

The meeting was hosted by USB – United Societies of Balkans, which is a non-profit and non-governmental organization, working in the youth sector from 2008 and participating in the organization of mobility programs, events, workshops, seminars and trainings targeting young people.

What is YWID?
