A National meeting of organisations working with and for Roma young people

In the course of two days (09-10 August 20126) the Plovdiv Youth Centre hosted a significant event – a National meeting of organisations working with and for Roma young people. The purpose of the meeting was to present and promote the work of the four youth centres (Plovdiv, Stara Zagora, Dobrich, and Vratsa) operating within the ‘Children and Youth at Risk’ Pogramme, Component 1 ‘Care for Youth at Risk’ as well as to discuss key challenges that the today’s young Roma face. Good examples, stories, and practices and future partnerships between the centres and the represented organisations were also a vital part of the discussion. The meeting was officially opened by Georgi Titjukov – deputy mayor ‘Sport, Youth and Social Policy’ at the municipality of Plovdiv. Mrs. Rositsa Ivanova – secretary of the National Council for Cooperation on Ethnic and Integration Issues – also welcomed the participants and took active part in the discussions.
