YES Forum’s first virtual General Assembly successfully took place from the 20th to 21st October. The two day event was open to members and interested parties alike. The participants were able to exchange ideas and to talk about current development and the struggles that the youth work sector is facing nowadays.
We presented our new and ongoing projects and the newly developed YES Forum strategy was also introduced. After the voting procedure we were furthermore able to welcome a new member. The Austrian organisation ÖJAB works with many different target groups and has been the organiser of the meetings in Vienna last September.
The highlight of the second day was the keynote speech given by Floor van Houdt, who is the head of the Unit for Youth, Volunteer Solidarity and Traineeship office on Youth policy and Erasmus+.
The virtual General Assembly showed that working together from a distance can be fruitful! We hope to have further inspired you and your peers, that progress is possible. Stay in touch!
